The Christmas Cactus plant is extremely popular this time of year for gift giving, hostess gifts, and holiday decor. For good reason, as well - they are very easy to care for and will show beautiful flowers around the holidays. Simply paired on its own or as part of a bright tablescape as shown below, a Christmas Cactus is a great choice for your holiday season!
In terms of care, Christmas Cacti will do best in bright filtered light. The plant will not withstand direct sun as it can be easily sunburned. If the "joints" between leaves start to turn red, your plant is receiving too much sun.
Since it is part of the cactus family, your plant does not need a lot of water - simply water about half a cup of water once a week. In the fall and spring, every other week is appropriate. These plants will thrive in a humid environment.
