Christmas Cactus Rooted in Water

Anonymous added on September 18, 2015 | Answered

I rooted a leaf from a Christmas Cactus in water; then I planted it in a pot several months ago. The leaf seems to be thriving, but the new plant (leaf) has not grown at all. It shows no signs of any new growth. Can you tell me what is wrong?
