The 5 must-have plants in your house at Christmas
Although we know that there are many more, this time we wanted to make a list of the most beautiful and traditional plants for Christmas.
1. Poissentia Euphorbia Pulcherrima
This species is the quintessential Christmas plant. It is known as a Christmas flower, Poinsettia flower, or poinsettia for good reason. But don’t be fooled by its name, since these plants were well-loved before Christmas holidays were even celebrated .
If you have a garden at home, you will be happy to know that Poissentia Euphorbia Pulcherrima adapts to both indoor and outdoor environments. If you are passionate about plants and want to feel the true spirit of Christmas, this is a plant that you should always have during the festive period.

Although the most typical colour of the leaves of this species is red, you can also find it in other colours such as pink or yellow, so why not get several of them?
2. Schlumbergera Truncata
The Schlumbergera Truncata is an ideal cactus for the holiday season, and it is commonly known as Christmas cactus since it shares a great resemblance to poinsettias with their red flowers.
However, it has nothing to do with Poissentia Euphorbia since Christmas cacti have a very long lifespan if they are cared for well.
The particularity of this plant is the position it adopts as it grows, with leaves that appear to hang down, which will no doubt captivate you.

3. Selaginella Apoda
Selaginella Apoda is a small succulent characteristic for its light green colour, but don’t be fooled by its appearance, despite not having as striking colours as other succulents, it is a plant that combines perfectly with other more colourful Christmas plants.
