|Comment||Thank you so very much for your information, Darlene. After reading your answer, I realized that I did not know too much about my plant. It has been in the family so long that I just continued caring for it as what was passed on to me. I thought a cactus was a cactus. I did not know about the plant being a jungle cactus. And, I don't recall that being mentioned in any other of the sites that I have googled. I know know how to start a new plant and will hope that I can keep this plant going in some fashion. Some of the woody stems have broken off and dried out, possibly due to my neglect in NOT providing enough water. Thank you again for all of this great information. I certainly do appreciate it.
