Festive, floral and full of colour - who can resist the charming Christmas Cactus? They'll arrive in bloom with bright, trumpet-shaped flowers in shades of pink or white. These easy care plants make great gifts, or work well as a centre pieces on your table when entertaining this party season.

This plant is said to symbolise answered prayers, as legend has it a little boy prayed to the heavens for a sign of Christmas. One day he awoke to find himself surrounded by the flowers on the tips of these cacti.

Don't treat this festive plant in the same way you would with a normal cactus. It is an epiphyte and is native to the tropical rainforests of southern Brazil, where they grow on tree branches. They will need humidity and warm temperatures to thrive. You'll need to water every 2-3 weeks, but only when the top two inches of soil feels dry to touch.

Jo's Top Tip

This cactus is for life, not just Christmas! It will reflower every year with the right care. After it has bloomed, home it in a cool room for two months, and reduce watering. Then return it to its usual spot.

      Returns

      If you'd like to return a living item, let the team know within 30 days by emailing hello@beardsanddaisies.co.uk or live chat if online. Please attach a photo of the faulty or damaged plant. Other items can be returned for a refund within 30 days as long as they're unused and in re-saleable condition.

      In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

      Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

      If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

      It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

      Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
