Use half a cup. Stick your finger in the soil before watering to make sure it is necessary. www.gardenguides.com/83821-house-plants-like-coffee.html

It depends on the soil you have the plant in. If the soil is too basic, you can use diluted black coffee (no cream or sugar or you will get bugs) to get it to a good pH balance. If the soil is already acidic, I would not add coffee.

pH testers are pretty cheap and you can get them at many places. I know Amazon has cheap ones. Christmas cactus do best with a pH between 5.5 to 6.2.

I was house sitting earlier this month and she has the most beautiful Christmas cactus I have ever seen. It just bloomed my last week of sitting. It never had anything but morning sun and tap water!

My Christmas cactus is in a pot which is planted in potting soil.
I have no idea what the pH is so I will share my coffee with it.
Thank you

It is fine that you add some coffee to your Christmas cactus but you should make sure the soil is the right type of soil to do this one with. The coffee can't be hot and you can't have any type of sweeteners or cream in the coffee. I normally just use water and not other things like coffee for my plants and they grow great.
