Mitch, Thank you for your great article and lovely pictures !!! I was given a Christmas catcus this spring. It was a clipping which rooted in water -(2 or 3 sections) and planted in cactus soil. It has grown and split and the longest branch has about 7 sections. I was hoping it would bloom soon. It is very healthy looking. Your article said it is by temperature, not length of daylight that it blooms. Does it only bloom once a year? Could mine bloom soon? Any idea? Well, thanks again

It needs to get a little cool to bloom - let it get in the 40s by a cold window and it will bloom.
