Flowers on Christmas Cactus plant - Knowledgebase Question

Lynchburg, VA
Question by PastorJ1121

The flowers are withering on the plant, do I just pull them off, cut them off or what? I have never had a plant that has bloomed so much and I am proud of my taking care of this cactus since Last Christmas. It has fully bloomed and now I don't know what to do with the withering flowers- please help!

First of all, congratulations on successfully coaxing your Christmas cactus into bloom! Now that it has finished its display, the spent flowers will drop off on their own. If you find them unattractive, and just can't wait for them to drop, you can gently pull them off the tips of the stems. Happy Holidays!
