Holiday Hanging Baskets

Christmas Cacti & Poinsettias

 
Did you know that Christmas cactus will re-bloom? Here's the secret: regular, uninterrupted stints in a very dark spot, such as a closet at night. To have plants in full bloom by the holidays, begin the dark treatments in about mid-October. Place the plants in a dark closet from about 8 pm to 8 am each night for 6 to 8 weeks or until you see buds forming.

Christmas cacti will also bloom if they are subjected to cool temperatures of about 50-55 degrees F, eliminating the need for dark treatments. Plants should bloom for the holidays if cool treatments are started by early November.
