Description

Christmas Cactus, Schlumbergera – Plant

The Christmas cactus is easily propagated by cutting a short Y-shaped segment from the stem tips. Make certain, however, that the cutting is taken from healthy plant foliage only. Plant the segment approximately a quarter of its length deep in slightly sandy soil. Moisten evenly and place the cutting in a well-lit area, staying away from any direct sunlight.

To root cuttings for new plants, cut back shoots from the tips, cut at the second joint of each tip. The cutting should show signs of growth within a few weeks, at which time the plant can be transferred to another container, if desired, with a looser potting soil mix of compost, loam and sand.

How to Care for Christmas Cactus

Sunlight

Thrives in bright indirect to medium indirect light. Not suited for intense, direct sun. Extended periods of low light in the fall will help encourage winter blooms.

Water

Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing the soil to dry out halfway down between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

Schlumbergera can be sensitive to water with the high calcium content. Try using filtered water or leaving water out overnight before using.

Humidity

This plant can benefit from extra humidity when in bloom.
