My friend has a Christmas cactus that really wilted. I was wondering if there were any tips to repair the problem or at least stop it from getting worse


Ive loved houseplants ever since I was a kid, my grandmother taught me. Majored in Floriculture in High School.

Over watering may be the issue. You see wilt you think you need to water - not so in this case. Hold the water for a while and see if it recovers.

Your cactus needs semishade or shade mostly.
Little water ......Live on neglect mostly.
