Bring the tropical charm of the Christmas cactus into your home with its stunning and festive flowers!
Christmas cactus, also known as Schlumbergera, is native to the coastal mountains of Brazil. It is a popular succulent houseplant due to its ability to flower around the winter holiday season, hence its common name.
Christmas cactus has flattened stem segments and small, showy flowers that can be pink, red, purple, or white. (Read More about Christmas Cactus colors here.)
Other than the color variants, there are several types of Christmas Cactus too.
Christmas Cactus is a relatively low-maintenance plant and thrives in bright, indirect light and well-draining soil.
To encourage blooming, the Christmas cactus requires a period of short days and cool temperatures, so it is important to provide it with a cool, dark place for at least six weeks before the desired blooming time.
In addition to being a popular houseplant, the Christmas cactus is also grown outdoors in warmer climates. It makes a beautiful addition to a garden or patio and is a popular choice for holiday decorations.
