How to care Schlumbergera Zygo Cacti

To care for a Schlumbergera Zygo Cactus, provide it with bright, indirect sunlight and water it when its soil is dry. During the summer months, fertilize it once a month. In the winter, reduce watering and fertilizing.An east-facing window or a bright bathroom is ideal. Too much direct sunlight can bleach the sensitive leaves.They should receive enough moisture that the potting material does not dry out but does not remain wet. Ideally, keep the plant in temperatures between 15-27°C. A daytime temperature of 21°C and an evening temperature of 15-18°C is preferred.
