Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera buckleyi) is an easy-to-care-for houseplant that can flourish for years, said Lyn Chimera in this article in the most recent edition of WNY Gardening Matters.

“I still have a large plant that started out as a cutting from my mother over 50 years ago,” she said.

Learn more about Christmas cactuses– and Thanksgiving cactuses, too– as well as how to care for them, in the article.

Also in this edition is a graphic on principles of permaculture.
