Description

Schlumbergera truncacata also goes by the name Christmas Cactus because that is when the beautiful blooms usually appear in the Northern Hemisphere. For us in Australia that means we get these bell shaped, colourful flowers in our winter which brings a well deserved splash of colour to brighten up our cooler days. 

Naturally found in the jungles of Brazil this epiphytic cacti likes a warm, humid spot with nice filtered light. It’s an interesting textured plant with surprisingly showy long-petalled flowers that hang delicately from the stem tips. Colours range from pink to yellow, lavender, orange and white. The leaves are spineless, flattened and a bit pendulous almost weeping from the centre to form a really pretty arrangement.

Her pretty hanging habit and beautiful flowers makes her easy to love but she is also easy to care for. She is drought and heat tolerant and will be happy to hang out with you as long as you don't overwater her.

  • Quick Facts
  • What to use me for: I look mighty fine in a hanging basket on the deck

    Where to place me: I will need plenty of bright, light but not direct sun which will burn my leaves

    Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently.

  • Size
  • Currently, I am good to grow sitting at 15cm tall in a 125mm pot. 

     

  • Growing
  • Drink preferences: Give me a water when my soil is dry to touch, I do not like wet feet so make sure I have good drainage

    Potting needs: I like to hang so pop me in a hanging basket - just make sure it has a drainage hole so I can breathe and don't skimp on the soil I really like a good quality, well draining soil 

    Tips and tricks: I get pretty hungry so give me a feed once a month from late winter to early spring

    I look good with: Want to create a lush looking, low maintenance succulent zone on your balcony? This babe looks good grouped with the Sansevieria trifasciata LaurentiiZamioculcas zamiifolia and the Pilea libanensis Silver Sprinkles
