Thank's for your comments:) I personally think easter cactus is one of the most beautiful of all the holiday cactus, and especially since their flowers last for a month or so, compared to the thanksgivingcactus were the flowers only last a few days.. :)

Thank you Helenchild :) Mayniac69: from my experience i've learned that they should never get too dry.. if they do, they will start to trow leaf segments, so i make sure that the plants never go completly dry. I have them in a room facing north, since they don't like to strong sunlight, but bright indirect light. During the summer, i hang them outside in the shadow, and they get fertilzed now and then. I let them hang outside until just before the first frost is arriving in fall- and when i take them inside they are usually loaded with buds. I have one though, that i don't hang up outside during the summer because it is in a large pot i find hard to hang up.. with that one, i place it in the basement, from november trough to february, when the buds will start to form. The easter cactus need a cold period to produce it's beautiful blooms, and without any cool ( +10 C) They do not bloom after my experience- that is :)
