(Schlumbergera segments in water)
When moving three of my Schlumbergera plants last week two different plants lost a couple of leaves. This has happened before but I'm trying a method which is a little different than before. A few days ago I placed them into a plastic pot tray with some water. Now we'll see what happens.
Speaking of my Schlumbergera's, I purchased all of them in the past few months...since prior to that the only personal experience I had with them was the "real" 30-year-old Christmas Cactus (not Thanksgiving Cactus) that my parents own...and also hasn't bloomed for many years. I got a couple of beautiful flowers from my plants, but before I knew it there were no longer any flowers. I know that they had to adjust to a new environment and I probably wasn't giving them the right conditions to continue blossoming, but hopefully by next year I will have figured out how to make them bloom to their greatest potential.
