Second year with mine and still no luck with any blooms. It sits in indirect light and it never goes dry. What could I be doing wrong?

36w
comment
wilkinstc

@rudester1 maybe try more light. I put mine in my carport this summer and even though I neglected watering it many times it grew more than ever due to the increased light. It’s starting to grow flower buds now

36w
comment
rudester1

@wilkinstc thanks for the quick response. I’ll try that. For some reason I thought they’d prefer less light.

36w
comment
wilkinstc

@rudester1 no problem! Just to be clear, I don’t think they like much direct sun, a few hours of morning sun would be fine but just brighter light in general should work.

36w
comment
laketitlow

@rudester1 I put mine outside in part shade in the summer. I just move it in the living room. I don't have to put it in the basement for 30 days to force it to bloom. Outside in part shade then inside and you have flowers.

Is this a Thanksgiving cactus or Christmas cactus? It is labeled Christmas cactus.

2w
comment
mojosmomma

@laketitlow The difference between the three cacti is found in the shape of the leaves. The Thanksgiving cactus (Schlumgera truncata) has very pointed and claw shaped projections on the edges of the leaf. The Christmas cactus (Schlumgera bridgesti) has leaf projections which are more scalloped or tear drop shaped.
