XXSdentateBMT 2020; SRL Registrationextra small segments have variable forms on the same plant: flat, triangular and quadrilateral. This rare, unique hybrid dispells the idea that S. microsphaerica might not cross with other Schlumbergera species (McMillan & Horobin, p.63). Not easy in cultivation. Cross was confirmed by DNA testing.
