Christmas (Holiday) Cactus

 

The response from our growers who purchased plants has been remarkable! Christmas Cactus Liners are available for shipping in May/June. We provide excellent varieties and colors for the most discriminating grower. Each cell has 4 plants each with 3-5 leaves and is packed 144 in a case. To reserve your preference – orders should be booked well in advance.

There are a few very good reasons why Christmas cactus (also known as Holiday Cactus) sales are on the rise. First, growers are looking for alternative crops to grow in the summer to cover overhead costs and make a profit. Second, they are relatively easy to grow, require minimal water and chemicals and will tolerate a wide range of temperatures. Third, in many areas of the country there is very little competition for good quality Christmas cactus. Rather than growing a marginally-profitable (if at all) traditional crop, this is a great solution.

Now taking orders for the 2016 season!   Order your Holiday cactus cell packs soon!!
