My Thanksgiving cactus flowered three times this year. I have had it since 08, and it never flowered that many times, is that normal? I live in upstate NY

yo so the less fertilizer light and water it receives the more it will flower, and as it gets older

I reckon at 5 years that it's pretty old for a thanksgiving cactus. During the summer it gets sunlight outside, and during the fall and winter it gets indirect light
