These beautiful ladies are named as they are due to their blooms which appear around Christmas time and last for several weeks – putting on a show each year, letting you know the festive period is near! Even without their blooms, these are amazing little plants that can grow to be huge over time, and fit in with both arid and tropical neighbours.
These are very easy to care for, thriving in bright indirect light but tolerating almost all light levels – allow the soil to dry out some between waterings. Temperatures in the home should be fine year round (above 16’C). As with most houseplants, you do not want it to sit in saturated soil, so if you’re repotting, be sure to use a well-draining mix.
