Red Easter Cactus
The Easter cactus (Hatiora or Rhipsalidopsis gaertneri) is a close relative of the Christmas cactus and the orchid cactus which, to a beginning gardener, can be quite confusing. However, the main difference between the species is the bloom time, along with other major differences in appearance and growth habit.
Hatiora gaertneri has been crossed with Hatiora rosea to form hybrids with flowers in a wide range of colours , i.e., red, pink & white
These plants perform best in bright light, but not direct sunlight. Unlike dessert cacti, these plants need cooler temperatures, even during the day, and will bloom for months in nighttime temperatures.
Keep the soil lightly moist and allow it to dry out before watering again. Good Easter cactus care means repotting the plant every two years in spring. The plants enjoy being pot bound, but give it new soil and return the plant to the same pot.
Mass planting and containers.
