Starting her flowers for #thanksgiving 😁 The sun is bright and hot today, so it is hard to get the 📷. #thanksgivingcactus #schlumbergeratruncata #succulent #pink #southerncalifornia #california 2 November 2018

I’m confused 🤷‍♂️ I thought they didn’t like a lot of sun?? I have one and it bloomed a few months ago but someone said they don’t like a lot of sun. Makes sense that they would since they are a cactus. Mines under my grow light cause it’s getting cool here. Where should I keep it. Plzzz help!!!!🤗😊💕

Ok just read the encyclopedia explaining care so o need to get it from under the light it said for it to bloom it need ?? 16-18 hrs.?? Darkness so I’ll let you know I did also get great blooms last year. That’s where it’s going back to that window. Thxs😊💕

@terrimclaughlin, I am no expert here, but I have my best blooms when these get some direct and filtered sun and their feet are warmed. Sounds like she liked your window. A bit of fertilizer always gives a boost too. ❤️ Remember that although they have been given the common name of "Thanksgiving" cactus, they will bloom when they are good and ready. 😁

@KariSamuel , I put the gloves on, then take them off for one reason or another, and, well, then the fingers are dirty. ❤😊 It does feel good to get your hands dirty.

@KariSamuel @lovestogarden. I’m the same way. I just can’t feel when I need to feel the roots or whatever with those gloves on. My hands are so beat up but it’s from years of being in that dirt. I guess we all sort of love it. Thxs for showing me the difference in the blooms of the Xmas and thanksgiving cactus
