Spring Cactus

$ 14.00
Size

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. We love how their feathery flowers brighten up the space and bring a bit of springtime indoors.

PLANT CARE

‚Äʬ†Light:¬†Prefers¬†bright, indirect light, but tolerates lower light
‚Äʬ†Water: Drought tolerant. Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry to the touch¬†
‚Äʬ†Considerations:¬†Schlumbergera produce flowers in cool temps with a short days. To initiate the production of flower buds, in late winter¬†expose the plant for¬†16 hours of dark and¬†8 hours of light for at least 8 days. Pet friendly!
