Schlumbergera sp - Christmas Cactus
Schlumbergera is a small genus of epiphytic cacti native to coastal Brazil. A quintessential holiday plant, these jungle cacti are famed for their showy blooms which appear like clockwork each holiday season – which is why members of the genus are broadly referred to as Christmas Cactus. With some species blooming earlier, around Thanksgiving, and others a bit later at the winter holidays, the Christmas Cactus brings much needed warmth and color to the home as the seasons change.
Easy to care for, the Christmas Cactus is tolerant of little root space, lower light and slightly more moisture than other cacti. Simply provide bright indirect light and water when the cactus is nearly dry, and it will reward you with blossoms year after year.
Ships in a plastic 4" nursery pot. Each pot has multiple clumps; overall plant size 4-6". Your plant will be budded or at the beginning of its bloom cycle, and flower color includes orange, purple, pink and red. Feel free to note a preference when you place your order!

I ordered two of these for the holidays and they arrived with only a few buds detached because of the shipping. The plants are both vibrant and filled with fuchsia-colored buds, which are already opening into flowers. I’ll be planting them both together for a more impactful statement. Love Pistil’s!
This is a cute little plant, and it even seems to be holding on to most of its buds although I've read that they don't like to be moved once they've set their buds for the season. So far so good. My only complaint is that I was told on the product page that I would be able to choose a color, but I didn't see any option for that during checkout. I tried to send a separate note right after I completed my order, but it didn't seem to work. Anyway, it would be nice if the checkout page allowed for notes or special instructions to be included.
