Christmas Cactus Care Guide

Christmas Cactus While the poinsettia remains the most popular of holiday houseplants, a healthy Christmas Cactus in full bloom is a great gift idea for that special gardener.

Along with a bounty of blooms, send these tips for keeping the plant looking its best:

Location

Most blooming plants will keep their blossoms longer in cooler temperatures, so keep the plant in a well-lit location away from heat vents, fireplaces or other sources of hot air. Also, more blooms will be produced on plants that have been exposed to high light intensity, so keep your plants in a sunny spot indoors.

Soil

Well-drained soil is a must for Christmas Cactus. Use a commercially packaged potting mix for succulent plants or mix your own by combining two parts plain potting soil with one part clean sand or vermiculite.

Watering

Watering seems to be the source of most problems with the Christmas Cactus. Water thoroughly when the top half of the soil in the pot feels dry to the touch. Discard the excess water, then do not water again until the top half becomes dry. The length of time between waterings will vary with the air temperature, amount of light, rate of growth and relative humidity.

Pruning

Pruning your Christmas Cactus after blooming will encourage the plant to branch out. Remove a few sections of each stem by pinching them off with your fingers or cutting with a sharp knife. These sections can be rooted in moist vermiculite to propagate new plants.
