Could be it’s an Easter cactus?

Pinch those flowers! It will be fine. Let the roots get going more and happiness will bloom later. 💞 Those leaves do look like an Easter cactus. @KelsiBriana

Hey, I had a thought earlier, is this a cutting from my Christmas cactus? Mine is also very rounded on the leaf edges, but is definitely a Christmas.

My Christmas cactus cuttings have a few buds but the leaves are twisting ,is that normal? @lovestogarden @KariSamuel #cactuscuttings

Twisting (a bit) I would have to say that is pretty normal. But is it getting proper water? The shriveling is usually indicative of needing a drink!

@KariSamuel I give it some water when the soil is completely dry, I say every 5th day I have it in a cactus/perlite mix.

Ok. Mine are in regular potting soil, so I might be missing something.

@KariSamuel Gave it some water ,I also have them on a tray with rocks and water for humidity because with the heater on my house is a bit dry. They are on the windowsill they get morning sun, not sure if any of these things are ok

When a succulent is putting energy out to grow roots, bloom or because of stress, they often become wrinkled. I would pinch off the buds so the energy can go to rooting. This will help her. Your humidity tray is good. Check out: https://homeguides.sfgate.com/christmas-cactus-look-shriveled-100588.html @KariSamuel

These are not actually a cactus and can do with more frequent watering. Let me see if I can find a link...
