Get ready to experience the magical blooms of the Christmas holiday season with our extraordinary Holiday Cactus, also known as Schlumbergera!  With vibrant blooms during Christmas this holiday the cactus is a beautiful and popular houseplant known for its stunning and vibrant blooms during the Christmas season. 

 Unlike most cacti, it lacks spines and thorns. Instead, it has flat, segmented stems about 12 inches tall that resemble leaves. These stems are usually green, but they can also have a reddish or purplish hue, adding to their visual appeal. 

The flowers of our current Holiday Cactus selection specifically bloom during the Christmas season, creating a truly magical atmosphere that will captivate your family and friends. These red, white, and pink blooms are not only visually stunning but also emit a delightful fragrance that will fill your home with the Christmas holiday. Their unique colors and shapes make them the perfect centerpiece for any festive gathering. 

But here's a fascinating fact: nurseries have mastered the art of controlling the bloom cycle. By carefully manipulating the amount of darkness the cacti receive, they can ensure that these magnificent holiday plants bloom precisely when you want them to. That means your Christmas Cactus might actually be a Thanksgiving hybrid, ready to dazzle you with its exquisite flowers during the holiday season.  

 As the holiday approaches, imagine the joy of witnessing this cactus bloom during Christmas. This holiday cactus blooms during the Christmas season and is similar to the Thanksgiving Cactus (Schlumbergera truncata), Christmas Cactus (Schlumbergera bridgesi), and Easter Cactus (Rhipsalidopsis gaertneri) that burst into bloom, filling the air with their enchanting fragrance and vibrant colors. Native to the tropical rainforests of Brazil, these Holiday cacti are unique because they bloom around specific holidays like Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter, hence the name. 

When it comes to Holiday cactus care, they prefer bright, indirect light and well-drained cactus soil. It's important to water them thoroughly but allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings.  

During the blooming period at Christmas, it's best to avoid moving the plant too much as it can disrupt the flower buds. With proper care, your holiday cactus can bloom year after year, bringing joy and beauty to your home during the holiday season. 

The Schlumbergera Holiday cactus prefers warm temperatures between 65°F and 75°F. It's important to keep them away from drafts and extreme temperature fluctuations, as they can be sensitive to those.

When you are growing your Holiday cacti outdoors, they are best suited for USDA zones 10-12. These zones have milder climates with minimal risk of frost, which is important for the well-being of holiday cacti. 

Additionally, this holiday cactus, Schlumbergera, is generally considered non-toxic to humans and pets. This means that if you have curious pets or young children around, you can feel at ease knowing that holiday cacti are safe to have in your home. 

Whether you're a seasoned plant enthusiast or just starting your green thumb journey, holiday cacti make a wonderful addition to any collection. If you're looking for a low-maintenance plant, consider this Holiday cactus for sale! 

For more information and care, learn more about each of these 3 types: Thanksgiving Cactus, Christmas Cactus, and Easter Cactus here at Planet Desert. Also, if you are curious about the difference between these three types, then be sure to check our article comparing the different types.
