The know-how to buying and caring for holiday plants
Poinsettias, Christmas cactus and amaryllis are some of the plants we bring into our homes for color during this time of year. With care, these plants will provide cheer throughout the holiday season.
Poinsettias are a plant that most of us have had, and several of us have been disappointed by them because of the dropping of the lower leaves. Here are a few tips to guard against having this occur.
Amaryllis is the perfect holiday plant for those who don't have time to fuss with plants. Six to eight weeks after the bulb is potted, beautiful blooms should appear.
Christmas cactuses are wonderful holiday plants that also make nice houseplants the rest of the year.
People are often concerned about them dropping flower buds during this time of year. Sometimes this is just a result of too many buds for the plant to support. Other times it's caused by the soil becoming too dry or excessive swings in temperature. Steady temperatures and consistent watering practices will result in a nice display of holiday color.
