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.
