It takes very little effort to get your Christmas cactus to flower at the right time. It requires ample summer water and partial shade but allow soil to dry slightly between waterings. The Christmas cactus is a short-day bloomer. Remember that the shortening days of September and October are what trigger the flowering cycle. Allow also temperatures at night to drop slightly to induce flowering. During the flowering cycle, keep your Christmas cactus moist (but not soggy). After the blossoms have fallen off you should back off on the water for a couple of months. If it needs repotting, this is the time to do it. Christmas cacti won't want a normal cactus soil but will prefer to be in a soil containing sphagnum. This type of soil would normally be used for orchids, bromeliads or other epiphytic plants. The Shlumbergera drop their buds easily if they are moved. Once flower buds have formed, DO NOT MOVE the plant, as slight changes in environment may cause the buds to drop. These forest cacti tend to be long lived.

I have bought a lot of plants online in the past three years, and I can say this seller had the best packaging! My plant was so neatly wrapped that I didn't have a pile of dirt flying out of the box; it was so secured that it didn't get crushed during the transit to CA. The plant arrived super healthy.  I can't wait to see it adjusted and in it's full beautiful form! Thank you so much.  I most certainly will be purchasing more plants from you.
