Christmas Plants ~ Christmas Cactus

I always associate these stunning plants with an elderly neighbour who had a wonderful gift to grow these wonderful christmas plants.
Although during the summer, the plants can be cared for outside, they should be brough inside during early October, so now is the ideal time.  The plant will flower more prolifically at Christmas if it is kept in a cool inside environment and subjected to legnthy times in the dark.  It should be watered reguallly, but the soil should be allowed to dry before you water it again.
The Christmas Cactus comes in a variety of pinks and reds which makes it perfect for yur Christmas display.
