The Christmas cactus has become a firm favorite in recent years, and as an alternative to the traditional Poinsettia, it’s easy to see why more of us are opting for a pricklier festive flower.

With hanging branches and an abundance of little flowers in red, white, yellow, pink and purple, the Christmas cactus is the perfect way to bring a burst of color to festivities. And they bloom just in time for the holidays
