Brian's Bits

A round Tuit.

I finally got one.  (A round Tuit that is)
The Schlumbergera Gaertneri (Easter Cactus); the one on the right "here" was so top-heavy that it would happily lie down at any convenient moment it saw.
Result, as ever, multiplication set in and I'll now have a spare in the foreseeable future.
As is frequently the case with me, it's more an aide memoire that for photgraphic judgement.
BTW - for those wondering - the "Triangular" ones have since grown a bog-standard flat paddle above themselves.

"We live and learn" I've just looked up the Chrismas variety, to refresh my memory. Though I DO wish they'd make their minds up:-
1. "Most Christmas cacti now in cultivation are considered to be hybrids of the Thanksgiving, or crab, cactus (Schlumbergera truncata, formerly Epiphyllum truncatum) and S. russelliana."

2. The Christmas cactus (scientific name: Schlumbergera bridgesii) is not really a cactus but a succulent.
