I think it may be Schlumbergera x buckleyi as per images and details at
https://plants.ces.ncsu.edu/plants/schlumbergera-russelliana/ (Most of the plants sold in stores today are hybrids of S. russelliana and S. truncata. The hybrid type determines when it will bloom. There are over 200 cultivars of these plants which give a variety of flower colors.)
