|I found this picture not too long ago. The photo was taken by my Nana in the 80's but according to my Mom this plant originally belonged to my Great Grandma. The color is orangish red.|
Does anyone recognize this plant or at least know where I can get a similar one?

|Oh, there are hundreds of cultivars so your best bet is pick a color, find a reputable nursery that specializes in them and pick something. |
This is a Calif. seller, he lists on eBay and he is a good seller, I have talked to him several times at the local nursery he sells at as well as the local annual Landscape and Flowers shows. http://www.epiphyllumworld.com...
Here's another good vendor http://www.epies.net/

|I found some small plants which I have no idea what they are, how to take proper care of, and if I should repot? I f I should repot these plants, what is the proper procedure? How large a pot for the next proper size?|
How should I water these plants and how often?
How do I research to find out what plants I have? I know there are websites for doing this, however many times I don't know what criteria to use, so when you research a plant, thaT ARE THE STEPS YOU TAKE?

|Well, it's a little better. I wanted to get the cactus on the right into the picture more, but this is proving to be a bit of a challenge. Hopefully there is enough of this cactus to see what it may be and then again, if not let me know and I'll take another picture. Perhaps I should have take separate pictures of my new plant friends.|
