Anyone have a variegated Schlumbergera?

I was in Menards the other day and noticed that a few of the CC looked different than the rest. The edges on some of the stems looked off white or golden. When I was there I thought maybe they looked like that because of bad growing conditions but now I'm wondering if they were variegated.

Anyone have one that's variegated and a picture of it for comparison?

I had one. I don't have a picture of the one I had online in my photo album to share, but I did have that same variegated one with the yellow and green leaves I found at a grocery store.
Unfortunately, the leaves all eventually turned green, even with an hour or so of direct sun each day, the same as the reg ones get. It just reverted, much like some of the Avs can do because of poor breeding, and so there was nothing I could do about.
If you want a variegated one to stay variegated, I was told to find the one with the green and white leaves, but that one can be VERY hard to find.

Hi,

Try next door (as it were) at the Cactus & Succulent Forum. If you do a search there, I believe you'll find related discussions, not sure about sources.
