On page https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/cacti-succulents/christmas-cactus/how-to-propagate-and-plant-christmas-cactus.htm , the author says "taking a short, Y-shaped cutting from the stem tip." I do not understand "Y-shaped cutting". Please add a photo, drawing or diagram to the article.

    I agree that a picture of the "Y" would make things clearer. It is only one way of propagating holiday cactus. Here is another method: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/cacti-succulents/thanksgiving-cactus/thanksgiving-cactus-plant.htm
