True to their name, these flat leafed succulents bloom right in time for the holiday season and that too profusely. The pretty pink blooms last well into the new year and when not blooming they make for a pretty foliage plant. Requiring very little care other than bright light, they are excellent for those sunny windows of yours.

Plants growing in containers need more fertilisers than those in the ground. The more you water, the more quickly you flush the nutrients out of the soil.

Plant Essentials

Fertilizer/ feed for the plant : Plant the Christmas Cactus in a humus and nutrient rich but well-draining soil. Feed your plant a high potassium fertilizer every two-weeks in the growing season, especially when the buds form and fertilize it once every two months in dormant periods.
Repotting : Repot your cactus every year after the flowering season is over in fresh soil for healthier growth. Do not try to repot your cactus when the plant is blooming, as the plant will go into shock and struggle.
Propagation : The Christmas plant can be easily propagated through leaf cuttings or as they are called segment cutting. break/cut off segments from the mother plant and propagate them in water in a glass jar with the cut end just skimming the water surface.

Plants growing in containers need more fertilizing than those in the ground. The more you water, the more quickly you flush the nutrients out of the soil.

Common Problems

1. Why is my Christmas cactus wilted or limp?
The wilting or limp plant can be due to either too much sunlight or too little water. Give you plant bright indirect light and keep the soil moist with ample misting.
2. Why are the leaves turning brown?
Brown and mushy leaves are a classic sign of root rot due to overwatering. Let the soil dry out completely and water sparingly. If the plant does not look salvageable, take a segment cutting of healthy green parts and propagate.
3. Why is my plant covered in silvery-grey growth?
The silvery-grey matter covering your plant is a fungal infection called botrytis blight. Prune away the infected parts and keep it in a dry place with reduced humidity. Use a good insecticide for further cure and prevention.

Style and Decor

Light Requirements : The Christmas cactus loves bright indirect light with a few hours of direct sunlight.
Locations : The best location is near an East or West-facing windows or areas that get a couple of hours of sun everyday.
Styling/décor tip : Christmas cactuses look spectacular as the centre piece, put them on a stool or table and appreciate the chic vibe it brings to a space. With its stunning but understated foliage and happy pink blooms when in season, there is nothing that can quiet measure up to it. Plant it in a pedestal planter or our glam metallic ones to elevate your space.
