@lesliecole49 this plant is just one of the many propagated from the original. This particular one is in a 12" x 8" hanging pot.

@pixierose that is great. Give it some plant food and then stress it after a month or so. It is worth a try.

@terrimclaughlin as you can see, mine is hanging down and is unbothered by that. Keep adjusting sun/water to get your #succulent happy. ❤

@lovestogarden thxs for the advice about the cactus. I had it outside in early morning (spring) sun..it started blooming but then I thought someone had said they don’t like heat so I brought it in. Do u think it can handle all-day outside shade??

@terrimclaughlin I would not do all shade as they like some sunshine. If they start to bloom and you move them, they can drop the blooms. You can put them among your plants and they get sun off and on through the day. You will probably have to try some spots as your heat/sun is different than mine. If they were happy to bloom for you, they may like that spot. ❤

So here is the deal, I have Dar's chart saved, so I looked at it. The plant looks to me like an Easter (Rhipsalidopsis), but the flower does not. @toddbrandino @brightcolours @karmey @SikoMa
