Now is the Time for All Good Xmas Cactus to Go Dark


The secret to getting your Christmas Cactus to bloom around christmas time is to get them some darkness – right now.

The classic Schlumbergera orssichiana x truncata will bloom for up to 2 months, and needs bright indirect light, dappled sunshine being best. But here’s the secret:

1. August, September: Use bloom food every time you water

2. September and October: 14 hours of darkness, with 8-10 hours of indirect light every day

3. November and December: bring out to bright indirect light and watch it bloom!
