Am looking for schlumbergera buckleyi/bridgesii as my father used to have them but they are no longer commercially produced.

I seen both of those colors at lowes, if google photos are correct.

Maybe I'm confused and my "want add" doesn't read correctly but I'm not looking for a particular color of Christmas cactus. I am looking for the old fashioned Christmas cactus with the smoother edges, not the "crab type" pointed edges. But thanks anyway.

The barbed leaved schlumbergera is a thanksgiving cactus not a christmas cactus.

Here is the differance: http://cactus.biology.dal.ca/paulS/christmas/christmas.html#recognition

Thanks for posting the link, Mary. The offers I've received have been for the crab-type leaf and I'm looking for the smooth edged leaf. And as far as I know the old fashioned smooth edged leaf only comes in the fuschia color. (unless someone else can shed some light on it). Thanks again for the link.
