You win some and you lose some. Here are five wins and two loses. Grafting various cacti onto Schlumbergera truncata almost two weeks ago, all exposed to reuse air for a week now. The two failures: a tiny golden barrel cactus seedling that I was doing for seedling practice, and a red mutant Gymnocalycium. I'm glad the others worked, especially Schlumbergera opuntioides and a chevron graft of the variegated form of Schlumbergera orssichiana 'Madame Butterfly'.

Variegated Schlumbergera hybrid (S. truncata x S. orssichiana) 'Madame Butterfly' grafted onto green Schlumbergera truncata 'Dark Marie' in December. They have fused nicely and now MB is making new growth. πŸ’ͺ. Easy and fun to do.

Getting some nice new growth on this grafted Schlumbergera cutting. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘. This is the variegated Schlumbergera 'Madame Butterfly' (a truncata x orssichiana hybrid) grafted onto 'Dark Marie' a truncata variety. For me, chevron-grafting of Schlumbergeras works best. Madame Butterfly is fine on her own roots--this was just for fun and practice.

The variegated form of Schlumbergera 'Madame Butterfly' is starting to flower. Here's a close look at a bloom and some of that awesome variegation. She had a lot of S. orssichiana in her ancestry, hence the huge flowers and VERY pendant stems. Just as easy to grow as other types, but plan for the very cascading stems. Great houseplants for sunny windows. Long, cool nights with little artificial light after winter sunsets encourages flowers.

A closer lπŸ‘€k at the awesome foliage (cladodes) on the variegated form of Schlumbergera 'Madame Butterfly'. Remember, there is the original NON-variegated 'Madame Butterfly', but the variegated form has definitely become more popular. Unstable, often producing all-white albino segments. Don't let her make TOO many of those as they use energy but don't produce any since they don't have green chlorophyll. Neat, easy plant with S. truncata and S. orssichiana ancestry.

A closer LπŸ‘€K at the flower on the variegated Schlumbergera 'Madame Butterfly' this morning. You can tell from the shape, and large size of the flower, and the VERY pendant stems, that she has a lot of Schlumbergera orssichiana in her ancestry. Plop her in a sunny wondiowsill and water her when she's dry, maybe once a week. Long, cool winter night encourage flowers so keep all Schlumbergera cacti away from artificial lights that appear after winter sunsets if possible.

A quick pic of the variegated form of 'Madame Butterfly' (Schlumbergera orssichiana X Schlumbergera truncata) with an off-season flower with Wilson the tennis ball to show size. I give her a spot in a sunny windowsill and water her once a week. She's unstable, often producing albino segments, though never all-green ones. She has inherited the huge flowers and VERY cascading growth habit of orssichiana.

A closer look at this huge flower in the variegated Schlimbergera 'Madame Butterfly'. The size/shape/color of the flower is very similar to the pure S. orssichiana species (this one is S. orssichiana X S. truncata). A sunny windowsill and water only when dry keeps her happy.

A nice large flower on an albino stem on my variegated Schlumbergera 'Madam Butterfly'. She's a slow grower but worth waiting for. The huge flowers and the VERY pendant stems shows that she has mostly S. orssichiana in her ancestry. A sunny window and water once a week keep her happy. Don't let her make TOO many albino branches as they use energy from the plant but can't make food from light without green chlorophyll. A few are fine, but as with much of life, moderation is the key.
