Easter Cactus 'Scorpius' (Rhipsalidopsis gaertneri)
Bright red, 2" blooms arrive in profusion from March until May. Each flower lasts for several weeks, opening every morning after sunrise and closing at sundown. The iridescent star-shaped blooms are borne on the ends of the stems similar to Christmas cactus. Easter Cactus like filtered light but no direct sunlight. They also need well-drained soil, moderate watering and fertilization. Keep plants cool and moist while in bloom to extend the flowering season. These plants are budded and will bloom this spring.
Hardiness Zone 10
Bloom Season Spring
Sun Requirement Partial Sun
Grows to 8-12"

  1. Easter Cactus Review by Susan
    How do you rate this product?

    At first, this plant seemed like it wasn't going to make it (I have several of the Easter and Christmas cactus plants and they have been living for years). So, I took them outside this summer and it took off with growth. I recently brought them back inside and the plant looks very healthy and happy and I am looking forward to it blooming!
