Christmas Cactus Care

Grandma's Christmas Cactus 

Around Christmas, something magical happens with Christmas Cactus at Bank of Memories & Flowers.  This plain looking plant will blossom in flowers of red, white, and pink.  Because of this festive seasonal bloom, the Christmas Cactus is a tradition in many homes during the holidays.  

Christmas Cactus thrives in bright, but indirect sunlight.  In the blooming season, the plant does not like ultra dry soil and requires light regular watering, (done at the base of the plant.)  I will say that my grandma's Christmas Cactus is a true antique.  She had it ever since I was a small child and it blooms in a beautiful dark pink color just before Thanksgiving. The seasonal changes of the length of the days trigger the plant to start flowering. 

Stop on by at either locations to see these gorgeous plants.
