    This zygo is of an unknown type & we have had it for more than 23 years. It was found, still alive, a couple of years ago, in the large pot of a maidenhair fern. The pot, originally, was the home of this zygo but the self-sown maidenhair fern took over as the dominant plant. We thought the zygo had passed into oblivion but we found one struggling little stem, still in the container. It flowered last year & the year before, but do not think it will flower this year. When it was given its own pot & placed on the front patio slugs & snails got to it & nearly "ringbarked" its main stem. We thought we had lost it again but it seems to be struggling along with a few bits of it replanted in its pot. I brought it inside to protect it from snails & it does appear to be doing quite well. :bravo:

    The vigorous, healthy looking, zygo plants, in the background, are a pot of "Sterling" & "White Fantasy" zygoes.

    Our old, type unknown, zygo has really started to look fantastic. It is growing so well & old snail damage seems to have been largely repaired by the plant. It has done well & this is very pleasing. :D The plant fooled me & did flower this past flowering season, though with just the one flower. It now lives out on the front patio.

    It has grown dramatically in the past few months, Dawn. Cannot believe just how well it has been doing as it has more than doubled in size with some parts of it increasing even more than that. The regrowth of the snail damaged leaves are also amazing. In the image, in the quote, it is just a scraggly, puny, shrivelled, dull zygo & now it is all lovely & glossy with many leaves. :D

    We are so relieved, as we have had it for so long, & are pleased it has bounced back into the land of the living, again. :bravo:

    Yes it is looking grand now Joy! I do see your comparison ! Isn't it lovely looking at the shiny leaves now all healthy and glowing again :) . I am so pleased it bounced back like that :smile: I can believe how one can be attached to it. I also forgot to mention how amazing that snail damage has healed over that's really :good:

    We cannot believe it ourselves, Dawn. Only recently noticed just how much it has grown & recovered. It really doesn't look like the same plant. :clap:

    Our very old, type unknown, zygo is really starting to flourish. This is the best I have seen it in years. It has so much new growth & is looking really good.

    The amount of new growth on this zygo, which has appeared in the past few months, is astounding.

    The old unknown zygo continues to grow so well. Would like to say it is flourishing but do not want to jinx it. This is so encouraging.

    Another angle of the old zygo. It seems to have had a fresh lease on life with plenty of new growth.

    :lol2: Thanks, Justy. :D Both Bruiser & I are so delighted to see how this old zygo is going now. It would have to be getting close to 30 years old. When I look at the first pic & how it looked then, I am amazed at how well it has done. It is great. :bravo:

    The unknown old zygo flowered wonderfully this latest flowering season during our early winter. It had the most flowers it has ever had & made a lovely display.

    Some of its early buds.

    Its first flower of this season. It is pinker than some of its other flowers which are starting to open.

    Nearing the end of its flowering cycle for this year. The old zygo - schlumbergera truncata - has done well. We are thrilled to see this.

    One of the last flowers to open on the old zygo - schlumbergera truncata.



    A flower on the old zygo, a schlumbergera truncata, wet from the rain which plagued us this zygo flowering season.
