I think plants are gonna do what they are gonna do, so I don't think I'd bother repoting. This is crazy weather for sure!!😝🥶💘😍

This side is prettier!! I had to go back to school notes about pollination to remember stigma, which is just 1 I think 😊💕

Does anyone know what type this is or is mine just an ugly duckling??? 😟😥. It has so many white stigma’s. I think that’s what their called. The white straight thin growth going to the top. Everyone’s I’ve seen on GT were very pretty it’s just starting to open so let’s see and there’s another one to the left😊💕

It's identified correctly Terri. Schlumbergera truncata also known as Thanksgiving Cactus or False Christmas Cactus 😊 That's a pretty colour 😊💕

Thxs @natii I wasn’t sure cause of the way the bloom looks but it’s still real pretty and it probably wouldn’t hurt if I feed it soon. Have a great weekend 😊💕

@nej I moved it yesterday and a large branch came off it had about 6 little buds that were just popping out so I buried it back in the dirt. Do u think it’ll b ok. Gosh I wait a year for flowers and get a couple and now the area where there’d b some pretty blooms and it breaks🥵🤭🤨😰😱🤬🤬🤬🤬😤😡 it seems like it swirls as it grows and the weight seems to heavy maybe?any suggestions 😥

Terri the piece you put back in the soil will most likely root. So then you'll have a second plant. 😃

Yes Terri as @sherrisgarden said, it will grow back. They are quite resilient

It's very pretty. He missed your sweet self while you were gone. This is a pretty zygo. No clue about blooming. They're supposed to bloom in the season they're named after, but hot houses might have this one mixed up for awhile. Pretty!
