when does yours tend to bloom? i had some one tell me that it is usually when you water it? but for me - i can't figure mine out ... it blooms when it wants to. it has a mind of it's own. my Grandma Mary had these 2 gigantic ones when we were kids - they were past on to my bro when Mary past away. the bro tried to keep them going but sadly they didn't make it ... i guess they didn't like being moved ... no clue.

lovely blooms. ( :

For me, it's the sunshine coming in the window! Spring the angle of the sun puts direct sunlight on it. I think most plants are like this, as this imitates summer sun, and the plants have to procreate for fall.But who knows!!!

It began to bloom last spring, but I ignored it and it was under or over watered, I forget which! The blossoms fell off early.
It's such a crap shoot!

Nice! My cactus has been very poor this year.

it's gorgeous. I just bought one earlier this month, but so far I have only seen one white flower, which makes me think it's not a Christmas Cactus, but an Easter one?

When Wayne and I were in Arizona in early April the cactus were in bloom. They have such delicate flowers for sturdy plants. - Margy
