Commonly called Christmas Cactus or Thanksgiving cactus, these are probably the easiest holiday plant to take care of and are often passed down for generations. They do like bright light and a little direct sunlight, although too much direct sun can burn them. An East facing window is a perfect location for some morning direct sun and overall bright light. Allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. They do want to keep a pretty even moisture level but they also don't want to be sitting in water which could rot the roots. Another great benefit of the Christmas cactus is how easy it is to propagate. Cuttings can be taken from the shoots, two joints in and put directly in potting soil. You should wait until after it's done blooming though as the tips of the stems have the majority of the blooms on them. These festive plants are also non-toxic to dogs and cats!
