Planting+

As soon as possible after receiving Schlumbergera mix ‘Tricolor’, plant them in a spacious pot. Choose a pot with holes in the base with a saucer, so that any excess water can drain away. Or you can use an ornamental pot with an inner pot that can collect the water. Sprinkle a layer of hydro granules or gravel over the bottom of the pot, cover with fresh potting compost and plant the Schlumbergera mix ‘Tricolor’ root ball at the right depth. Fill the pot with more compost to about a centimetre below the rim (leaving room to water) and press firmly down. Water well immediately after planting and stand the planter in a moderately warm, fairly light spot out of direct sun.

Care+

Keep the soil around the Schlumbergera mix ‘Tricolor’ moderately moist. The soil may be on the dry side. It is preferable to water (rain) generously occasionally, rather than just a little, regularly. Make sure that the pot has adequate drainage so that the bottom of the pot does not become water logged. The flower buds are formed during the dormant period, which starts from the beginning of August.

For about three months keep the plant relatively dry and cool (12-15 ° C), in a bright spot. Water gradually more and more once the buds are visible and keep in a warmer spot. Every spring during March-April repot into fresh compost. From late May the plants can be taken outdoors into a shady spot. From now until the beginning of August, feed regularly when watering.

Extra+

Schlumbergera mix ‘Tricolor’ are very special houseplants that flower wonderfully in the winter. The flowers are very elegantly shaped and come in three different shades. The stems are rather flat and lobed.

The Schlumbergera’s hanging habit make them just beautiful for in a hanging basket - or even try them in a tall pot. Commonly called Christmas cactus for the obvious reason that they often bloom just around Christmas.
