Christmas Cactus is a popular plant along with the Poinsettia for the holidays, making great gifts when in full bloom. Flowers range in a variety of colors including red, purple, orange, pink, fuchsia and cream. Christmas Cactus plants should not be allowed to dry out completely. Water when the top hald of the soil feels dry to the touch, but do not overwater as that may cause bud drop. A bright location out of direct sunlight is preferred.
