Holiday Cactus in Maine, on Video


A Christmas Cactus is also popular, though it blooms closer to Thanksgiving than Christmas. Remember that a Christmas Cactus is not a true cactus. You water it much more often and don’t let the soil dry out.

Well that’s not true. It is a true cactus, and you do want to let it dry out between waterings, even if we do water it more often than desert cacti. And this was on a news show! Don’t they have editors?

A Vermilliad is a tropical plants that provides Christmas color. The leaves act as water cups.

OK, so this is the editors problem. On the video he clearly says Bromeliad. If you google it, it does appear to be a common mistake.

Here’s the video proof.
