Schlumbergera Plant with flowers that are delicate
I hope you are doing well and are safe!
How to create coziness in the house? There are many ways to create a cozy home. Can there be coziness without plants in the house? I think not. Flowers are pleasing to the eye and create a special joyful, I would say festive atmosphere in the house. Especially if they are flowering plants
Schlumbergera is a beautiful plant that is suitable for any home!

You probably know what the Sources report about the flower:
Zygocactus came to Europe 205 years ago (1816) from the rainforests of southeastern Brazil. The flower got its name in 1858 - Schlumbergera after a French breeder.
In the natural environment (in the Southern Hemisphere) Zygocactus flowers in summer. Under room conditions (Northern Hemisphere) plants bloom following their natural calendar (November, December, January). Therefore, the popular name of the plant "Christmas cactus".
And once again the plant has bloomed! This is November 2021. Yes, two days ago.
I have had Schlumbergera growing for several years now. Maybe 10 years already. And every year pleases its blooms with amazing bright colors
This bright scarlet flower was given to me by my mother-in-law.
Several years ago a friend of mine gave me a cuttings of a flower with 3 segments. Schlumbergera blooming with white flowers.I grew it myself!
This is how the flower bloomed last year. I am waiting for it to bloom this year as well.
Schlumbergera is unpretentious, I did not have any special difficulties with the cultivation. Although in recent years the flowers appear in different seasons.
In summer the plants are on the terrace, in a well-lit place. In late autumn, I return the plant to the house, on a window sill with a shady side. During vegetation, they require adequate hydration, and after flowering I reduce watering. I water when the top layer of soil in the pot is dry.
I wish you flower growers success!
