Botanical Name: Schlumbergera truncata

Common Names: Zygocactus, Christmas Cactus, Holiday Cactus and Crab’s Claw Cactus

The Zygocactus is part of the cacti variety but are not a desert plant, in fact they originate from the tropical jungles of South-East Brazil, known for their high rainfall and humid climates. In Australia however, they will grow everywhere but in cooler areas will make excellent indoor or patio plants.

The Zygocactus grows into an arching bush which will normally spill over and below the base of the plant, making it perfect for hanging baskets, tall pots, on top of rock/retaining walls or anywhere it’s foliage can spread and drape.

Due to quarantine laws Ezy Care Succulents can only post to QLD, NSW, SA, VIC and ACT. We are currently seeking approval to post to WA, TAS and NT, so please join our facebook group to receive updates of when we can ship to you.


All plants are removed from their pots and all soil cleaned away as this is the safest and cleanest way of shipping. Succulents are extremely hardy, and this will not harm your plants but will just appear "dry and thirsty". Easy instructions on how to repot and care for your succulents are included with every order.

By preparing your plants with bare roots helps comply with quarantine regulations and also minimises shipping costs to our customers, making Ezy Care Succulents a very cost-effective way of purchasing your plants.

All orders are packaged with environmentally friendly recycled paper to ensure safe freight and reduce damage to the plant.


Only the healthiest, top quality plants are selected from the Ezy Care Succulents nursery for your order. The size, colour, and shape of your shipment may vary according to the season, or when shipping to colder areas. All succulents are slightly dried prior to packaging and may look different to the photo. Preparation instructions are included in every order which are specific to the plants that you have ordered, and usually only take a few days to recover.

Even though many of our succulents are known for their agricultural and medicinal uses, all the plants at the Ezy Care Succulents nursery are propagated for ornamental purposes only. Please ensure that you have conducted your own thorough research if you intend on consuming these plants, as we recommend against human consumption.
