Holiday Cactus (Thanksgiving Cactus)

$16.00 USD

The Thanksgiving cactus (Schlumbergera truncata) is a popular tropical cactus that is sold around the holidays for its gorgeous and prolific flowers. As its common name indicates, the Thanksgiving cactus is known for blooming around Thanksgiving, bringing a splash of color into your home just as the weather outdoors is getting colder.

  • Bright, indirect light
  • Pot in well draining soil.
  • Water every 10-14 days or when soil feels dry

While called and appearing like a cactus, the care is more similar to a tropical plant. They will show signs of stress on their foliage in the form of lack of color, drooping and shriveling. Blooms last for 2-4 months and will rebloom annually with proper care. To ensure a re-bloom, they prefer to be in as much darkness as possible overnight.

It is one of three common holiday cacti that are often confused with one another: the Thanksgiving cactus, the Christmas cactus, and the Easter cactus. While they all look similar, they are technically three different species of Schlumbergera.
