I'm trying to find house plants that will do okay with (1) me and my brown thumb, and (2) in a room that gets very little sunlight. I thought a cactus might fill the bill. I prefer a type that won't get really big; however, I don't know much about cacti, so any suggestions for any kind, any size, are welcome. Also, must not be toxic to cats.

Most catci and succuletns need a lot of light and even direct sunlight. I have been reading a lot lately in the catcus forum at Garden Web because I have gotten into raising several types of cacti and succulents....there may be some that dont need a lot of light but most do. Maybe post over there and ask them, they have some great cacti people there.

Christmas Cactus (Zygocactus or Schlumbergera) can be grown indoors with relatively low light and is more forgiving that other plants. It just wont flower as much.

That is actually a thanksgiving cactus.

Here is a good site that showes the differances in the holiday cactus...most the so called 'christmas cactus' sold in stores is not that at all, it is the thanksgiving cactus..but it sells better sold under the christmas cactus name.
