How to care for Christmas cactus

Soil: Use a soil mix that is light and drains easily.

Pot Size: 12 to 14 inch pot.

Potting/Transplanting: The pot selected must have proper drainage holes. To prevent water logging, cover the drainage holes with broken pieces of earthen pots or brick pieces before putting the soil. Transplant the Christmas Cactus sapling in a pot along with root-ball of original soil. Carefully place the plant in the middle of the pot & cover the roots completely with remaining soil.

Repotting: Christmas Cactus should be repotted every year; especially when the plant has grown too big, has an extra root bound, and is oversized as compared to the old pot.

Sunlight: Christmas Cactus needs bright indirect light for flower induction. Plant can grow very well in full shade.
