Best Christmas Cactus -Pots or no Pots

Best Christmas Cactus
Having a Christmas cactus around your home is a great idea and this plant is both pretty and fairly easy to take care of.

The Christmas cactus fits so well in your home in the winter holidays as its flower has such a lovely, festive appearance.

Colorful or white, Christmas cactus warms up a corner of your home and increases the festive feel around any house.

Some useful tips

Christmas cactus easily adjusts to low light conditions and if you want it to bloom faster, you may expose it to brighter light. Pay attention though as too much direct sunlight may burn its leaves.

The moisture on a Christmas cactus is important also and you need to water it constantly during active growth in spring and summer. The soil must remain slightly moist and it should never dry out completely. You have to balance things a lot and never let the plant sit in water either.

You may even consider applying a mild houseplant fertilizer solution from time to time.

The Christmas cactus would rather like a snug pot where the roots are a bit too large for the pot. The lack of space actually gives the best blooms. Therefore, you shouldn’t repot the plant more often than 2 or three years. When repotting, keep in mind not to do it while the plant is in bloom.
