one Schlumbergera cactus
Another popular name for this plant is Decembrist. All due to the fact that it blooms in December with beautiful flowers of an unusual shape. The color of the petals can vary from white and yellow to rich pink or purple.
Despite being a cactus, it does not have the usual sharp spines. The needles are soft and thin, more like a pile, so the plant can be started by those who have children at home.
The Schlumbergera cactus loves shade, so it is better to put it not on the windowsill, but a little further, for example, on a desktop or bookcase. You can water the plant once every one and a half weeks, during flowering — a little more often.
5 Signs Your Plants Are Feeling Bad (Time to Take Action!)
This is the most common type of domestic cacti, which is divided into a huge number of subspecies. They look similar, but each blooms differently. Therefore, if you decide on a cactus garden at home, take different representatives of this species to make the composition interesting. For example, Mammillaria boolii blooms with large, plant-sized, pink flowers. Mammillaria formosa produces white flowers with a yellow center, reminiscent of daisies. Mammillaria baumii has bright lemon yellow flowers.
In the warm season, these cacti are watered once a week, and in winter they hibernate, and it is important to reduce watering to once every three to four weeks so that the roots do not start to rot.
