    Thanks all! I'm very touched!
    I grew that cactus, years ago, from cuttings that someone left on the break table at work. I don't know the name.

    Well done @Daniel W :)

    The pointy bits on the leaves indicate it's a Schlumbergera truncata rather than a S. buckleyi :)

    @Daniel - Congratulation friend! That is such a beauty. I've never seen so many blooms.

    Thank you @Zigs.

    Here is a fruit on one of the Schlumbergerawhatchmacallits.

    I'm not sure what to do with that. It's been maturing for a year. It was pollen from the pink one, and the fruiting parent was white with red-ish margins.

    This one is the last to bloom. About ten or fifteen years old. Last year it had a mite infestation and I sprayed with soap. I think the remaining lesions are dead mites but I might spray again just in case. I don't know if a mite might recover from the spray. They have not spread to other plants. I took cuttings from it last year, and those plants don't have any mite damage.

    Cor :)

    Looks like it's not quite ripe yet, it does take a year. When it starts to go a bit squidgy then you can squeeze the seeds out. Be interesting to see what you get :cool:
