Bloom season has come to an end for these spectacular flowering cactus, but the plants themselves are healthy and growing! Sale specimens may have some blooms, but you can expect to see them in full flower again next spring. Product photography shows budded plants, before full flower.
The Spring Cactus is beloved for its bountiful blossoms that appear each year just as winter turns to spring. Growing epiphytically on the branches of trees in the jungles of southern Brazil, it's tolerant of less light and more moisture than most cacti, making the Spring Cactus an excellent indoor plant. Though it is similar in appearance to its relative the Christmas Cactus, Spring Cactus (also called the Easter Cactus or Whitsun Cactus) is actually a different species of Schlumbergera or Hatiora. We love how their feathery flowers brighten up the space and bring a bit of springtime indoors.
Spring Cacti need medium to bright indirect light and good drainage. Allow soil to dry moderately before watering. Includes detailed care instructions.
Spring Cactus selections include Schlumbergera gaertneri and Hatiora rosea, and blossoms range from red to pink. Ships in a 4" plastic nursery pot. Each plant has multiple clumps, about 3-5" long. The plants are budded and ready to bloom. Terracotta Olla Pot sold separately.

I knew the spring cactus would be pretty but I didn't realize how pretty. The flowers open into a star shape and are orange with a yellow center. Wow!!!! The plant arrived in pristine condition. Not a fleck of dirt was out of the pot. There was not even one broken flower and the plant tips were covered with flowers. This was the fifth or six plant I've ordered from Pistils and I've been so happy with all of them. I'll continue to order from Pistils.
A lovely plant with beautiful blooms. I was really impressed by the care taken to make sure it arrived in good condition. I will certainly be purchasing more plants from Pistils Nursery!
