Christmas Cactus - Schlumbergera
Named after it's flowering season the Christmas cactus is native to the rocky coasts of Brazil & grow in habitat that are cooler, shaded & humid. These cacti normally started to flower when the temperature drops & can flower in many different colours like pink, red, scarlet, orange, gold, cream, yellow or white.
LIGHT- Though they adapt well to low light conditions, you'll find your Christmas Cactus happily showing off her gorgeous blooms in an indirect, bright light environment.
WATER- Considering its native habitat, the Christmas Cactus is unlike its desert cousins; she likes to be watered once every 1-2 weeks, keeping the soil slightly moist. Don't let it dry out.
PRUNING - Trimming your Christmas Cactus about a month after blooming can help it to become a bushier, more voluminous plant. To prune, simply pinch off one or more of the leafy pads where they join together. These trimmings can be replanted in another pot to start your happy little Christmas Cactus family.
TOXICITY - Not only is she beautiful, the Christmas Cactus is also a non-toxic, pet friendly addition to your home!
