You could by them on Ebay. Rolling on the floor laughing

I was hoping to find someone to here! I would love to trade plants or buy small amount of seeds. Just to try! For the first time! Sighing!

I was kidding about Ebay. You don't usually get what you think you got when ordering seeds from Ebay.

My Holiday cactus has never even set seed.

My Thanksgiving Cactus has never set seed either. And I let the blooms fall off naturally.

This is an old thread, but I thought I'd pop in.

It IS possible to get seeds, but Schlumbergera are not self-fertile. You have to have two varieties to cross.

I have about 35 nearly two-year-old Schlum seedlings under my lights right now.

Sherry, What are you going to do with so many? I have one very large pot full of red and white which do go to seed some times but I never tried to grow any. And seed purchased on ebay sold by U.S. sellers are the most reliable but some also purchase from China and resell them. I have been ripped off by China many times. Would love to see photos of your success.
