Caring for Christmas Cactus
Light: prefer a cool, bright spot away from direct sun. If indoors, an east-facing window.
Water: like a moist soil, water when top inch of potting mix is totally dry.
Fertilizer: you can use a liquid fertilizer from the time that their buds develop, through their flowering period.
Pot Size: when their roots are flattening against the sides of the pot, increase to the next size larger.
During the Year: they like the outdoors in temperate climates, keep indoors where and when they might freeze.
Next Year’s Blooms
In November, place the plant in an environment with cool nights and no artificial light. Buds will form shortly. Once there are buds, move the plant back to its normal setting and apply liquid fertilizer.
