  1. I’m pretty sure I had one like your top purple cactus, or it was a member of the same family. Some people referred to it as the Easter Cactus, and others the Christmas Cactus as that was when it usually flowered. I took umpteen successful cuttings. but I can’t for the life of me remember what happened to the original.

  2. Yes, I would would say they are members of the same family, but is is a desert plant and the Christmas/Easteri are both from the jungle. I have been wanti g to get another cutting or plant of later.
