Christmas cactus

I got my grandma's cactus and the leaves have a little wrinkle in them. And when is it a good time to repot it

Repotting Christmas Cactus
by: Jacki

Hi Sheryl, I normally will repot any of the Holiday Cactus after they finish blooming. That's when they grow for a while, then go dormant for the summer.

Wrinkling of the leaves can happen when they're really dry, or when they're too wet. They need good drainage. If you imagine them in their native habitat, they grow in a jungle, high in the tree tops. They live on leaves that fall out of the higher trees, and rain will just run off, so they never sit in water.
