The commonest of the Christmas Cacti, though it has been entirely replaced in the trade by more modern hybrids. This one gets passed along from one person to another. I inherited three large plants, quite by accident, and have managed to give one of them away again! Now they are large they have to spend the winter under the bench in the greenhouse - there isn't anywhere else that can accomodate them. They are quite brittle, so bits fall off, get stuck in pots, and suddenly there is another one.
All these flowers to work with, and I still can't manage to get one in focus!
