Seems like a good deal on a CC

I dont have one and really have just started reading up on them. From what i gather they aren't the cheapest to get when larger and if actually a "true" CC then thats even a larger premium.

This one on ebay looks huge and is ~$40 shipped.

The plants they are selling are Thanksgiving Cactus' not Christmas Cactus.
You can tell this by the pointed ends/tips. True CC's have rounded edges.

If you want a larger CC, check on Craigslist. I wouldn't think a larger plant would ship well. JMHO

Many of the stores like Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes, and Smith's have large Thanksgiving cactus for sale right now. I even found some named ones and a light yellow. I found the yellow at Walmart and noticed they have very large ones for around $10. Then you wouldn't need to worry about shipping and could enjoy it immediately.

I have noticed quite a few stores from nurseries to HD and Lowes are stocking the yellow TC this year. It would be extremely difficult to find a true CC though.
