I bought this plant several years ago. It blooms easily and have 3 plants now. It had a tag so I thought it was ided, but they forgot to checkmark the name.

I think it is Tenna. Could it be Nille?

Thanks, Lin, I did see that picture and it looks pretty close.
I read on a vendors page that Nille has the white "tube" and Tenna has lavendar, so it made me curious. I don't know exactly which part is the tube. Mine does have a lot of white.

The style or "tube" in the photo in our database appears to be lavender (from what I can see of it) but I think I remember seeing photos online of others in the Thor series with the lavender/dark pink style/tube.

Hopefully someone more knowledgeable with these lovely plants will pop in with suggestions.

The Thor Tenna would be a guess....there are so many just now it would definitely be a guess. Here are some pics of my Thor Tenna that may help. The one you have was an older plant...now I have some younger ones.

I honestly don't know but there is a page on facebook called Holiday Cactus Lovers that you could post it there and see what they think. They do a lot of IDing for people.....not sure how accurate it is, but they are really sweet and helpful.

Sorry I can't help you more.

Thanks again, Lin. I'll take a closer look in natural light to verify if it is white or lavendar.

JB, thanks for taking the time to give it a look. Yes, I've had it quite a while. That was the original tag, so that limits it to 10 varieties and many are very definitely different. Some are solids, orange, peach, etc. I remember some tags were checked. I would pick the one with no check. Grumbling

Good on the FB referral, but I don't do FB. Mabe something will come up, otherwise I'll just enjoy a THOR plant.
