She is pretty. This looks like Schlumberger truncata, a.k.a., Thanksgiving cactus.

05/05/17. Oh no my cactus is falling apart! It's dropped of the new shoots. When the first leaf fell off I let it dry. #help #advice #cactus #cactus-advice #christmascactus #christmascactus-advice #thanksgivingcactus #eastercactus #pleasehelp

Just lay them on top of the soil like the others. They should form roots too. Maybe @lovestogarden can give you better advice? #succulent-advice

Thanks @SikoMa I'm going to try to root them I'm just wondering why they actually fell off!

I'm not sure why the fell off, but would love you to tag me when you get an answer. I'm with Dar, just let them scab as they set on soil. They look good. 🤔 @SikoMa

Thanks @lovestogarden I have looked it up and the most common reason is over watering! So I have left it to dry out.

The only thing I was going to say was maybe too much water ?

On my Christmas Cactus this shoot is growing. Because it's pink I think it may be a flower but I'm not sure. I need #help. Is this a flower bud or not? #christmascactus #cactus #plantid-cactus #succulent #succulent-advice #closeup #bud

This is my #christmascactus. Most of the plant died because it seemed like they just shoved a bunch of leaves into a pot and didn't let it root. #cactus #propagation #green #plant #houseplant #indoorplant
