If insufficient light causes Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera bridgesii) to grow too long, we should move the plant to a sunny place for maintenance.

If the fourth is Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera bridgesii) due to improper fertilization, we should stop applying nitrogen fertilizer.

We should ensure the comprehensive nutrition of fertilization.

In the autumn flower bud differentiation period, we should mainly apply phosphorus and potassium fertilizer.

Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera bridgesii) treatment method of too long

1. Short cut processing

Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera bridgesii) has strong germination ability.

Under the condition of proper water and fertilizer, it will grow faster.

In case of overgrowth, we should conduct thinning and pruning in time, which is conducive to the beauty of plant type.

We mainly cut the long stem nodes short.

After that, we can pick the heart several times according to the growth to ensure that the growth remains balanced.

2. See the light in time

Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera bridgesii) is a light loving plant.

It will flourish under sufficient light.

If there is no light or little light for a long time, it will lead to the growth of stems and leaves.

So what if Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera bridgesii) is too long?

At this time, we should timely move the plants to the outdoor environment with good sunshine for maintenance, and let the plants get more sun.

The branches and leaves can promote photosynthesis.

3. Reduce nitrogen fertilizer

Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera bridgesii) likes to grow in an environment with sufficient fertilizer.

However, if too much nitrogen fertilizer and too little phosphorus and potassium fertilizer are applied during the period, it is easy to lead to the phenomenon of excessive growth of Christmas cactus (schlumbergra bridgesii) and affect the beauty.

At this time, we should stop applying nitrogen fertilizer.

We should ensure comprehensive nutrition when applying fertilizer.

In the autumn flower bud differentiation period, we should mainly apply phosphorus and potassium fertilizer.

4. Pay attention to ventilation

Like most, Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera bridgesii) has high requirements for the surrounding ventilation environment.

If in the case of high temperature, high humidity and poor ventilation, it will cause the stem and leaf to grow excessively.

At this time, we should move the plant to a ventilated and sunny place.

During spring and summer, we should often strengthen indoor ventilation to promote photosynthesis of stems and leaves.
