You can enjoy its magnificent flowers all year round. Here’s how.
The Christmas cactus is a succulent plant that owes its name to the time of its flowering , or during the winter season.
However, it is possible to continue its flowering even beyond this period with small precautions .
Let’s see what they are.
- Temperature : Being a winter plant, the Christmas cactus does not like excessively warm temperatures. The ideal is between 13 and 15 degrees.
- Water : Like all succulents, the Christmas cactus does not need a lot of water. It is advisable to water it once a month and spray water on the leaves.
