There’s something wonderfully nostalgic about the Holiday Cactus. Also called the Thanksgiving Cactus, Christmas Cactus, or Easter Cactus—depending on bloom time and leaf shape—the pet-safe Schlumbergera is a favorite winter succulent. These are great for gifting for yourself and loved ones, or even party favors!

Mini Holiday CactusBrazil
Thrives in bright indirect to medium indirect light. Not suited for intense, direct sun. Extended periods of low light in the fall will help encourage winter blooms.
Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out half way down between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.
This plant can benefit from extra humidity when in bloom.
Christmas Cacti can be sensitive to water with a high calcium content. Try using filtered water or leaving water out overnight before using.
This is a pet friendly plant.
Make no mistake, although this plant looks dramatically different from its desert dwelling cousins, it is technically a cactus.
