Thanksgiving Cactus - Schlumbergera truncata - 4" Terra Cotta
Thanksgiving Cactus Information Schlumbergera truncata is the Thanksgiving cactus. It is called a leaf cactus but is not a true cactus. Rather it is an epiphyte, those plants which live on other plants. The leaves are broad and flat with slight serrations on the edges in the Thanksgiving vs. Christmas cactus, which has smoother edges. The flowers that appear in fall or early winter are similar to fuchsia blooms
As an epiphyte, it often has exposed roots and gathers most of its moisture through humidity in the air. Potted plants need well-draining soil and good drainage. Water thoroughly and then allow the top 1/2 of soil dry out before you water again.
Long lived and easy care. Can even be put outside in the summer and brought back in before temps are below 40.
