Notes:

It has fleshy thumb-sized leaves. Don’t know how big it grows as my dad got a twig from somewhere. It has fine serrations at the edges of leaves visible in the pic.

    It is a type of Schlumbergera, Holiday Cactus. Maybe a type of Schlumbergera truncate. As the plant matures and flowers, a species / cultivar can be determined.

    Awesome, Thanks. I think the leaves resemble genus of Buckleyi more than Truncata. Will eagerly look out for it to flower. Its growth has been insipid so far, may be a centimetre in an year.
