Planting And Care

  • Keep them potbound in sandy soil.
  • Water only when the soil is completely dry.
  • Provide some humidity to the environment.
  • Do not worry if some of the buds drop off, it is natural for the plant to lose a few.
  • Keep the temperature above 70 F in the daytime, from 55 degrees F to 65 degrees F at night.

    Christmas Cactus Care

    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 the 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.
