Unlike desert-loving cacti that are drought resistant, the holiday cactus is a tropical rainforest native and needs regular water to remain healthy. The flattened leaves are stemmed segments that hang and drape from containers and hanging baskets. Flowers form at the ends of the stems—so the more stems your plant has, the more flowers it will have. Traditionally, the cactus blooms red, but holiday cacti blooms can be pink, white, magenta, or purple, and the less common colours of salmon, peach, and orange.

To encourage more stems, grow your holiday cactus as hanging plant or place it where it has room to drape. You won't need to worry about touching thorny spikes like you do with other types of cacti!
