HAVE: Selenicereus anthonyanus aka Ric Rac / Zig Zag Plant

Hello, All
I have some Selenicereus anthonyanus aka Ric Rac / Zig Zag / Fishbone Cactus fully rooted for trade. I'm looking for the following as cuttings or rooted.

Christmas Cactus
Schlumbergera x buckleyi

Christmas cacti result from crosses of Schlumbergera truncata (Thanksgiving cactus) and S. russelliana. Although flower colors include purple, pink, white, red, orange, or yellow, Christmas Cactus can be identified by the oblong or obovate stem segments with crenate (round-teethed) margins.


Easter Cactus
Hatiora x graeseri

Easter cacti result from crosses of Hatiora gaertneri and H. rosea. The flowers are intermediate between those of its parents and seen in a range of colors. The leaves are characteristically oblong to narrowly oblanceolate. Notice the shallowly crenate (round-teethed) to nearly non-existent lobes on the stem segment margins and the areoles with fine, brown bristles.


Thanksgiving Cactus
Schlumbergera truncata

Thanksgiving cactus' oblong stem segments become pendulous with length. Note the sharply serrate-dentate (coarse, forward-pointing teeth) along the stem segment margins. Flower color is typically rose to red.

Thanks, Farmer Ron:)

Hey Ron, would you believe tonight I was repotting my Christmas cactus and a rooted segment fell off so I put it in another pot and I really have no need for it. If you're willing, I'd love to trade it for your Zig Zac cactus. LMK, thanks, JOel.
