Common Name: Millie Zygocactus, Christmas cactus, Crab’s claw cactus
Availabilty: In Stock
Thankfully for the Schlumbergera truncata, the common names are far easier to pronounce… known by a variety of other titles like Zygocactus, Christmas cactus or the Crab’s claw cactus, this is a hugely popular cacti variety. Prized for indoor planting and known for their stunning asymmetrical flowers in multiple colours (see our other varieties available), they are beautifully complimented by the unique cacti foliage. 'Millie's' flowers are a stunning light purple to vibrant fuchsia.
Growing in most environments in Australia and thriving as an indoor plant in cooler areas, add low-care colour to any garden or home. With a height up to 300mm tall, it is ideal for indoor plants, patio or container planting, conservatory planting, hanging baskets, colour contrast and added interest. Consider planting out in an hollow log or in hanging baskets and allow the weeping habit to cascade over the edge to spectacular effect.
Sensitive to frost, tolerant of drought. Most potted well drained soils. Prefers indoor environments with plenty of indirect sunlight.
