Christmas Cactus
Plant Features:
A beautiful holiday plant, the Christmas Cactus blooms during the Holiday season if cared for properly. A month prior to Christmas, you will be able to watch the tips of the leaves beginning to grow. The tips grow darker as each day passes, until a bud forms. At Christmas time, as if by magic, the buds open to a beautiful flower that will add color and warmth to any holiday season. Like many tropical cacti, Christmas Cactus is also an epiphyte. The flowers are available in a wide variety of colors including red, purple, orange, pink, fuschia, cream, etc.
