Getting Xmas Cactus To Bloom Again !! - Knowledgebase Question

Chelmsford, MA
Question by mlos

I put my Christmas Cactus plants in the dark closet for only TWO weeks at night and took them out during the day. They were filled with little buds. They all bloomed in about another 2 weeks. I'm wondering if I can do this again now or how long do I have to wait?
Thanks

While I have seen some plants bloom twice a year, the norm is only once because it is responding to changes in day length. You might try it periodically and see how many times you can get it to set buds!
