Schlumbergera germination

Post by Oleg » Tue Nov 14, 2017 7:02 pm

Hello schlumbergera lovers!
A colleague of mine has got some fruits on a schlumbergera plant. She is eager to raise new plants from seed but is unsure of the right ways. Could you give some recommendations, please?

It looks more like a Hatiora = Easter cactus hybrid rather than Schlumbergera. Don't know the answer to the question -though I'd guess same sowing conditions as any cactus. I'm sure someone can give a better/more detailed answer ...

Wait until the fruits ripen before harvesting the seed - I'd expect them to go red

Oh, sorry for misleading - that should really be a rhisalidopsis hybrid (easter cactus); but germination tips are still welcome!
