Christmas Cactus

Christmas cactus can grow on you in more ways than one! The plants get bigger every year, producing masses of delicate jungle flowers in rosy red, white, orange, pink, and pale yellow (depending on the variety), just in time for the holidays. These cacti are also low maintenance, blooming every year for 25 years or more.

After the Holidays:
When flowering is over, set the cactus outdoors if you live in a frost-free climate; in cold climates, keep it indoors until the weather warms in late spring.
