The Thanksgiving cactus is also commonly called the holiday or crab cactus. It grows best in light shade. Full sunlight is beneficial in midwinter, but bright sun during the summer months can make plants look pale and yellow.

Common name: Schlumbergera truncata
Color: Red, purple, pink, white
Bloom time: Seasonal bloomer
Height: 0.75 to 1.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
The Christmas cactus is easily propagated by cutting a short Y-shaped segment from the stem tips. Make certain, however, that the cutting is taken from healthy plant foliage only. Plant the segment approximately a quarter of its length deep in slightly sandy soil. Moisten evenly and place the cutting in a well-lit area, staying away from any direct sunlight.
To root cuttings for new plants, cut back shoots from the tips, cut at the second joint of each tip. The cutting should show signs of growth within a few weeks, at which time the plant can be transferred to another container, if desired, with a looser potting soil mix of compost, loam and sand.

Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Dry to medium

Temprature: 68°F

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Christmas cactus care tells us that it performs well under average home conditions with moderate care.
  • The Christmas cactus will adapt to low light conditions, but the plant will produce blooms more readily if exposed to brighter light.
  • That being said, too much direct sunlight can burn its leaves, so keep the Christmas cactus in an appropriate area to avoid this.


Special Feature:
In its native area, Schlumbergera truncata is grown outdoors as an epiphyte or in rock gardens. In cooler climates, this plant can be grown in baskets or pots for brightly-lit window sills. It is sold primarily around the holiday season as a gift or decorative item.
