Christmas Cactus Massacre
Every March my Christmas Cacti experience a massacre. The plants are in tiny clay pots (4"-5").
I give them "buzz" hair cuts, meaning it looks like a lawn mowing.
Every holiday season, 3-4 of these plants make their way to someone else's home.
Then the cycle is repeated the following March. The mama plant is in a 3" clay pot nestled in the green ceramic pot on the right side of the 2nd shelf. It is about 15 years old and has never been repotted.
These types of cacti are actually "air plants". In the wild, they grow attached to tree trunks, boughs or shallow soil. They are happiest when root-bound. These easy-to-grow plants prefer not being over-watered. African Violet or other bloom-related fertilizer is perfect for them!
Have fun trimming your Christmas Cactus and making some babies!
