Do you have a Christmas cactus?

Bought one about 8 months ago and figured it would bloom at Christmas, hence the name.'s just now blooming.

If you have one, when does it usually bloom?

  • Mine usually blooms around Christmas but, to keep things lively, it will often surprise me with blooms at other times during the year. It's huge and gorgeous. I'm not a big cactus fan but I like this one

  • It blooms anywhere from around Christmas until the end of April. I think ours would be happier if it had a place under the grow light.
