Need to brighten up your home for the holiday season? We're featuring our favorite seasonal plants that you can find at Home Depot (www.homedepot.com)!
The Christmas cactus, features bursts of colorful blooms. It grows best near a sunny window. Provide the plant with as much light as possible for the best blooms. Water when the top couple inches of the soil are dry and be sure all excess water drains away. If the container does not have holes, use approximately one-half cup of water, adjust as needed for your environment. Do not let the Cactus sit in water or overly soggy soil.
The height at shipping is approximately 6 in. tall, measured from the bottom of the pot to the top of the plant. Order online and the Cactus ships in a festive, 4 in. diameter holiday wrap.
Let the Holiday spirit grow throughout the year with Christmas Poinsettias. Poinsettias have been the staple plant for Christmas since the early 1800s. Great as a gift or for your own home, Poinsettias feature lance like leaves that work to purify the air all year long. A seasonal centerpiece that's ideal for smaller spaces, the Poinsettia is great for decorating.
