Christmas Cactus- Schlumbergera
This lovely hybrid has very strange flowers.
Beautiful and a very rare hybrid.
Christmas Cactus. is the second most popular houseplant for the holiday season.
These cacti like well-drained soil, allow soil to dry slightly between waterings.
The plants adapt to low light in the home, but produce more blooms if exposed to increased light intensity. Keep the plant in a sunny, indoor location during winter months. Plants can be moved outdoors in the summer and used as hanging baskets, but should be kept in shady or semi-shady locations. The leaves turn reddish if exposed to too much sunlight. An easy to grow house plant.
