It’s like some kind of cactus / succulent, It has no spikes, it is very heavy, It has huge white flowers (although in this photo it has buds about to flower) I also have another one but with fuchsia colored flowers. How do i look after these? Do they need full sun? Part sun/part shade? full shade?

    It’s a Schlumbergera, also known as an inch cactus or zygocactus. The genus is one of the group of epiphytic cacti that live in the trees of the cloud forests and rainforests of Central and South America. Most have very showy flowers.
