The Q&A Archives: Re: Christmas Cactus

Question: My Xmas Cactus has changed color from green to light red or pink color. Is this normal or it it dying.

Answer: You didn't mention whether your plant is indoors or out. Outside, the leaves can turn a reddish color in response to cool night temperatures, or exposure to sunshine. Neither is harmful to your plant. If it is indoors, it can indicate a nutrient disorder: feeding will help restore the green color. Best wishes with your plant.
