Cactus can make a beautiful Christmas-time plant
Next to poinsettias, the Christmas cactus can be a popular houseplant for the holidays. In general, they are easy to grow and can live for a long time with the proper care. Native to the tropics, they are used to growing in the canopies of trees and receiving moderate amounts of moisture. Thus, a medium light intensity and a soil high in organic matter are suggested. Do not allow the plant to dry out, water when the soil surface begins to feel dry and the plant may be kept drier in autumn. Any houseplant fertilizer may be used according to label directions.
Like poinsettias, the Christmas cactus has special requirements to get it to bloom. Cool temperatures or long nights are required to induce blooming. The plants bloom when given night temperatures near 55 degrees and day temperatures below 65 degrees. Plants will not flower at temperatures above 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
