DH's co-worker has this one in the office window and I have never seen one like this before. What kind is it? Do we have it in the US (can I get one of these when I get back there?)?

Sorry some of the pics are so fuzzy, we were trying to get snaps of the thick, long 'fur' at the leaf joints and the camera isn't very good for details...

Pictures are consistent with Rhipsalidopsis. Rhipsalidopsis are available in the US. I have 3. Here is a pic of one of them.

Note there are some minor differences, but mine is a young one and may change a bit as it gets older.

You can find different varieties here. http://mattslandscape.com/rhipsalidopsis/ There are many other sources.

Also wanted to say that the common name is Easter Cactus. These plants bloom in the spring.

Thank You!

This lavender color is so lovely and my DH says he Has to have one! Your link shows a "Pegasus" that is a good match to this one. I am relieved that I can tell him that they are available in the states!

Thanks again!
