Festive, floral and full of colour - who can resist the charming Christmas Cactus? With bright, trumpet-shaped flowers in shades of pink, these easy care plants make great gifts, or work well as a centrepiece on your table when entertaining this party season. Paired with a gold ceramic pot, to help add a glimmer of festive spirit to your home.
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.

Over the past 5 years we've really perfected our craft. We've developed time-tested sustainable packaging and packing tricks that ensure your plant will be delivered through the post in perfect condition.
We won a Silver Gilt medal for our debut exhibit at this years' Chelsea Flower Show's Houseplant Studios. Our concept 'The Plant School' featured an incredible 350 houseplants, including many of the plants you've come to know and love through our website. You can learn more about our concept over on our blog.

Nothing makes us happier than making you happy (cheesy, but it’s true) which is why we do everything we can to provide a positive plant experience from start to finish. Your plant should arrive fresh and healthy - if for any reason it doesn’t, we’ll replace it for free within 30 days!
