Very nice! Do you grow that like Rhipsalis and Epiphyllum?

Mine is doing its stuff now too, although your has more flowers. (tu)

(I seem to remember you grew yours from my seed which went to the BCSS Seed List one year).

Even more exciting, for the first time ever, I have a flower on my Schlumbergera russeliana. Apologies for the duff photo, but you need one hand to hold the plant, one to hold the camera, and one more to press the button...

That’s very nice Ralph.
Yes my herminiae is indeed a seedling of your plant. It’s doing very well, had it’s first flowering last year with 4, now it is getting massive (relatively speaking!) and will have to be potted on, currently still in the 2inch pot the seed was sown in. It probably looks better as it is in fact 2 plants in the same pot...
