So pretty. Has a faint pink tinge or is that the photograph?

It is a bit off white. It is really hard for me to get any natural color under my sodium lamp.

That's a lovely schlumbergera GT. It looks very prolific. :o)

I hope it stays white then, though I think the yellows are the most delicate and unusual. I'll put together cutting from all my new ones, I hope they don't homogenize.

Very beautiful plant!

Did you mean hybridize? If you put many colors together there's a possibility that they could potentially hybridize. It is more likely though if they were growing outside and bees and other bugs would pollinate the flowers. It would have to set seed though.

I meant homogenize as the colors would become one with breeding. Mikec has one he's had together a while and it hasn't bred out. Still a strong 3 colors. I loved the look. I just can't put these 3 together it'll have to be cuttings from them.

You're going to love having a white one Greenthumb. I think that mine has stayed white because it never goes outside. It's in a glass and screened in porch all summer.

I'm excited to have these more prolific bloomers in case the easter cacuts shows another reluctant year. I'm debating on letting them get some summer outside this year. I'm going to build a small house to lengthen the season.

Thanks Aleyna.

I do bring out mine in the summer, same for the Epyphillum. Rainwater saved is also good to use on all these cacti. Choronated floridated water from city sources tend to build up salts.

Thanks. I store my water in a drum where air circulation evaporates most additives before watering. Been fine for all my potted plants so far. I will put them out this year, granted the summer is a little warmer than last.

I will let you know how the low 30s's affect these plants. I am skirting the low teens F. outside tomorrow.

Feeling a little chill there aye? We're a steady -10 peak and holding. I'm thinking the low teens would be risk with these buggers.
