Description for Christmas Cactus, Schlumbergeras

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 Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Chrismas Cactus, Schlumbergeras, Christmas cactus, Thanksgiving cactus, Crab cactus, Holiday cactus, False Christmas cactus, Yoke Cacti, Easter Cactus Purple - Pink Mid-November and January 0.75 to 1 feet Easy to grow

Planting and 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 the 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 Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full Sun to Partial Shade Well-drained soil Dry to medium 68 degrees F Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Christmas Cactus

  • Keep them potbound in sandy soil.
  • Water only when the soil is completely dry.
  • Provide some humidity to the environment.
  • Do not worry if some of the buds drop off, it is natural for the plant to lose a few.
  • Keep the temperature above 70 F in the daytime, from 55 degrees F to 65 degrees F at night.
