Houseplant Care Basics

Last week we talked about ways you can reconnect with nature in 2019.  One of the ways you can reconnect is to bring the outdoors inside.  Over the next few weeks we’re going to look at unique projects and plants to keep your indoor spaces a green, lush oasis.

Caring for Christmas Cacti

Caring for Christmas Cacti

Christmas cacti, known as Schlumbergera or Zygocactus, blooms at Christmas and also sometimes around Easter if cared for properly.  A month prior to Christmas you will be able to watch the tips of the leaves begin to grow and form buds.  At Christmas, as if by magic, the buds open to a beautiful flower that will add color and warmth to any holiday season.
