Holiday Cactus Care

Though called holiday "cactus" these plants aren't true cacti. To be a true cactus, the plant must have areoles, which are fleshy areas with hair, spines, thorns, or scales instead of leaves. But, they are succulents. Succulents are plants that store water in their stems, leaves, &/or roots. Therefore, cacti are a subcategory of succulents. Thanksgiving, Easter, & Christmas cacti are collectively known as holiday cacti & all are epiphyllums. They bloom around their respective holidays & have different types of blooms & leaf shapes.⁠
