- These members of the Cacti family can be found growing wild in rainforests of Brazil. In its native environment, it grows on rocks or in trees where hummingbirds pollinate the flowers. During the warm season, a screened porch, covered deck or pool enclosure usually gives plants the filtered sunlight and humidity they need.
- Taxonomists seem to have been confused for decades over the proper classification. In 1953, Zygocactus became Schlumbergera truncata. The name Zygocactus may still be found on tags accompanying holiday cactus plants, even though that name is no longer valid.
- Watering- Inside the house, plants often suffer from under-watering because their owners mistakenly assume the plant is a desert cactus. In a rainforest, they receive adequate moisture from the air. In the dry air of a heated or air-conditioned room, they need more frequent waterings than desert dwelling cactus and succulents do. Daily misting can help raise humidity around plants, but they need supplemental watering when the top few inches of soil becomes dry. Do not over-water and cause them to stay soggy.
- Nice, full plants sold in 4'' pot.
Not only did this gift of an Orange Christmas (Thanksgiving) Cactus arrive in great condition, but shipping was FREE!!! All the extra charges added on by florists had taken sending floral gifts out of my budget and discouraged me from sending what I really wanted to. I worried about this plant going cross country, but it arrived and it’s size and condition was really everything I’d envisioned, except maybe foil around the pot. (But free shipping makes up for that) Thank You Full Bloom for not price gouging. You have my confidence and gratitude and my future business… Happy Holidays Everyone!
The plant was packaged so well that only one piece was broke off. So I'm trying to grow a plant for myself with it. Can't wait for it to bloom!
