Did you try the House Plant forum? They have quite a bit on that subject.
When you go to either of those forums just type in the name of your plant in the right side search box. It will give you a list of the threads, or you can just start your own thread.
Here is what I find in the Houseplant forum searching for Schlumbergera
http://garden.org/forums/search.php?forumid=19&q=Schlumberge...

And even more in the Cactus and Tender Succulents forum
http://garden.org/forums/search.php?forumid=78&q=Schlumberge...

And this from the search box on you home page, left side
http://garden.org/search/index.php?q=Schlumbergera+&button=


Our site search engine is amazing once you learn how to use it. Hurray!
Which one would you like it moved to?

Personally I think the best one is in cactus and tender succulents because that is what it is, but you could do simultaneous threads on houseplants too if you really want to interact with people! I tip my hat to you.
Plants bring me peace and calm, more of what we all need Smiling

I agree with Greg. I follow both forums and would love to interact, although all of my plants are NOIDs and are looking pathetic at the moment. I've got a lot to learn and am I'm all ears!

Thumbs up Thank You! I just like the effort to communicate with Growers who care for Schlumbergera cactuses of all types! I have a picture that will help identify segments and leaves. Great information to help start this forum. New Christmas cactus growers or old can use.

Sighing! Hi The cardboard this time of year in a bubble envelope gets very warm during long shipping trips and takes the moisture out of the leaves! I have gotten burn spots and the segments will not root! When I use the tubes I drill holes in both ends and air keeps leaves alive! I also, use plastic prescription bottles from the pharmacy! The pharmacy have 7"inch bottles and I drill holes at top! It's recycling too!

That sounds so much better then the box I got mine in a couple of months ago. They cooked and still are barely hanging on . They just stay limp and dry but not dead yet.

My new starters have new segments. I want to move them to a new hanging pot. How many do I use in say a 9" pot? How far apart.

I had my Christmas cactus outside for awhile it was great in the shade. I moved it back in to the house. 99 and 13% made them look thin and I was always spraying them.
I will wait till it cools to get the trimmings I want. I would like the flat orange Easter and Violet fall or winter.

Hi Everyone!
I learned from an expert about Thanksgiving Cactus on Facebook group: Zygo-Succulents-And More an interesting fact! Lee Goodfellow - An oldie, but goodie. Developed by A.J.S. Mc Millian( now deceased) co-author of Christmas cacti: The Genus Schlumbergera and its Hybrids. This is one of the early Queens (1985) (S.orssichianna x Spectabile).This is a nice old variety
