    Schlumbergera update.

    4EDE55E7-7065-4782-85F3-F8B7FB66461C.jpeg DF2AEC60-54A8-44C1-A93C-EB501F317667.jpeg 2AA8E32C-1AA5-48AF-8D70-1EEC8ED6ED9C.jpeg That last one is about 15 years old, maybe 20. I should start some cuttings this winter. I started it from cuttings someone left on the break table at work.

    Historical note: These cacti were named for Frédéric Schlumberger (1823–1893). Despite the angry sounding, gutteral name, he was French. Then again, his father came from Alsace, so who knows? Schlumberger was a cactus hobbyist in Rhouen in Northern France. However the cacti originate in treetops and rocks in coastal Brazil, from shady, humid climates.
