My mother-in-law used to grow the most beautiful Christmas cactus plants. She had one that was thirty years old and it had a span of almost four feet. It’s a good thing she had a large home. When it bloomed at Christmas time it was glorious! She had the schedule down to a Tee and it always bloomed exactly at Christmas time.
Poinsettias are the most popular Christmas plant, but Christmas cactus runs a close second. They are easy to care for and can be grown indoors throughout the year. They are a handsome plant even without the bloom.The flowers range in color from yellow, salmon, pink, fuchsia and white or combinations of those colors.
