Maintenance Notes: A Zygo cactus needs regular watering throughout their growth period during the Spring and Summer. Be sure to let the soil dry out a bit before watering but watch for wilting as an indication of underwatering. It’s also harmful to let the plant sit in water for too long, which leads to root rot and other infections.
Another popular plant in households during the holiday season is the Zygo cactus. Commonly referred to as the Christmas Cactus, these plants produce beautiful pink blooms, make excellent gifts, and are tremendously easy to care for.
