How to Care for Christmas Cactus

How to Care for Christmas Cactus

Christmas cactus is another holiday plant that we get calls about at this time of the year.

They are a great holiday gift idea when you are looking for something other than the traditional poinsettia.

With its brightly colored flowers, a Christmas cactus is a houseplant that serves as a beautiful holiday decoration.

These low maintenance, easy to care for plants can provide beautiful blooms for many years with a minimum of care, but the trick is to know how to make plants bloom on cue. 

Here’s a short video that shows you how to do just that, along with proper care tips that will help you to maintain your Christmas cactus so you can enjoy it for years to come.


I hope you had fun watching that and learned a little about caring for Christmas cactus as well.

That said, an introduction is in order.

I happen to be the fella who created this site, Greg Johnson, and I’ve gone ahead and shared loads of information-packed videos for you right on this site, many of which are about plant care.

There’s nothing more to say than that. 🙂

Actually, there is. I really started this site for a much different reason.

Here’s why this site exists

It seems I can’t get enough of watching and sharing informative videos (like the “How to Care for Christmas Cactus” vid you just took a look at), and I honestly just wanted a place where I could re-watch all of my favorites under one roof.

I also see this site as a decent financial opportunity as well. Why lie?

If can start and operate a cool site that others appreciate even half as much as I do, and maybe even make a little money with it along the way, then I certainly don’t see any reason to feel bad.



But let me be clear… in no way is it my intention to sell you anything.

If something offered on my site appeals to you, that would be an awesome bonus! If not, then we’ll still be friends. I just appreciate your readership. 🙂

I’m satisfied just watching and sharing top-notch floral content with like-minded people! 😉

And that’s the purpose that FlowersFloralFlorist serves. It’s a flower lover’s home for some really cool how-to videos.

If that sounds like something you can appreciate, then I’d love to see you again. 😉

So please keep on comin’ back! I’ll continue to share informative videos on a variety of topics such as DIY floral arranging, gifts and collectibles, and orchids… among other things.
