christmas cactus vs thanksgiving, holiday cactus

14 years ago

Since all the stores in town all seem to have thanksgiving or holiday cactus and not true christmas cactus Schlumbergera bridgesii is it safe to say that the holiday cactus is easier to grow? I plan to obtain some starts in the spring and am not sure what is best to grow. My mom has a holiday cactus that grows well for her. Is the Schlumbergera bridgesii more difficult to grow or just old fashion and out of favor with the growers? Are there any web sites or books that go into more detail on the subject? What about a club or society on christmas cactus.
