Personally, I wouldn't do this. One thing that IS safe for them is Epsom Salt (tablespoon/1 gallon of water). You will often see plants that are red and this is for one or two reasons: 1) Magnesium deficiency, or 2)Sunburn.

These plants with red phylloclades (the leaves, sometimes just called "clades") are very stressed; sometimes so stressed that they bloom as a natural survival mechanism.

I have Christmas cactus from 1968. I can not get them to bloom. I have many others from recent years that do just fine.

These stems are much skinnier then the Christmas cactus now. Any suggestions?
