Christmas Cactus - Knowledgebase Question

Question by werreyn

We had a god size christmas cactus in our sunroom. On a very cold night, we're caught off guard, it froze. It lost all its leaves. The stalks are dead. Would the root system have any chance of reviveing it? This plant was 20+ years old.

As long as the roots did not freeze they will very likely send up healthy new stems and leaves. I'd cut away anything that is obviously dead and just continue to water on your regular schedule. Once the roots recover from the shock they should send up some new sprouts. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!
