I have mostly houseplants and cacti. I'm a beginner doing constant research, trying not to kill anything. USDA zones 8a and 8b.

I am having trouble with mine too. Many of the smaller buds are just falling off! I think it may be due to overwatering at the nursery. It was downright swampy when I got it! I'm afraid to repot in dry soil and start over watering because I don't want to risk it stopping flowering so I'm waiting for it to dry out. @heatherdirtyhands

That's probably the best idea. Last year I only got 1 flower and this year I have 4 buds so its better at least. I think I'm.gonna lose a bud or two tho

@yogi2 I only have one. This is still Tom, the purple one. The flowers appear more purple or more pink depending on the light. 💜💕

I originally labeled this a Christmas cactus, but it's a Thanksgiving cactus! I will probably rename her. I wonder what a Thanksgiving name would be? #thanksgiving-cactus #schlumbergera-truncata #cactus #cactus-flower

@heatherdirtyhands I didn't even think to question the label, but you're right. Thanksgiving are the pointiest ones, right? I need to think of a Thanksgiving name now. What do you think a turkey would be named? Lol
