• Short days, cool nights initiate bloom for holiday cacti

    When attempting to grow tropical plants we are met with the challenge of mimicking their native habitat which is difficult inside our homes. We can allow Mother Nature to take care of some of this, outside, for now.  
    Move some of your orchids, holiday cacti and Clivia outdoors for the remainder of the season because we can initiate bloom by naturally managing day length and night-time temperatures.  
    The flowering of many plants (including some native species) is initiated by how many hours of light and dark the plant receives in a 24-hour period.
