I just bought an Easter cactus for an indoor plant on 5/14/16 and my flowers are wilting, they were bloom when I bought them and now they closed up and look like they are dying.. I've only watered it twice since I got the plant. Also it's on a table next to a window but it doesn't get direct sun. It's also in the same pot as my two kalanchoe and my ghost plant. I got told they all can be together. I only water when the soil is very dry.. I don't know what's wrong with them. Please help there is two pictures... One the day I bough them and one from today

Amanda- Well, I'm thinking it's done blooming. The plant itself looks fine, and you say you're not overwatering (which by the way, Easter cactus are very sensitive to overwatering). It's supposed to bloom once a year, named for the time of year it blooms. Hence, the name Easter cactus. It's a pretty color- looks like salmon in the photo. It will still look very nice in the pot even without the flowers!

Agree, the flowers are just dying off. They'll fall off eventually. Perfectly normal!
