Hi,

Here a close-up photo of a flower on my X Hatbergera. This is a cross between Hatiora and Schlumberera.

I suppose it shouldn't surprise me...but I didn't know you could cross these two. Is the flower fully open Or shall we expect updates in the future, Pieter?

I'll post a body shot next week when I'm back at home. To be clear: it's not me who created this cross, it were the guys at epric in Holland who should get the credit. About the growth I can say it grows fast and strong.

An update. Now one week later the flower is much better developped as can be seen in these photo's.

.

The tepals are tubular and I can see stamens and a pistil.
