Christmas Cactus

The Christmas plant we call the Blooming Christmas cactus is officially known as “Schumbergera” or “Zygocactus.” It blooms at Christmas and even at Easter time if well cared for. This little surprise from Santa stays tucked away all summer and then in the early fall, you can watch the tips of the leaves beginning to grow. The tips get darker and darker until a little bud forms. This beauty is just waiting for short days and cool night temperatures to show you its blooms.
