My dancing bones cactus is blooming for the first time since I've had it these plus 6 yrs. What can I do to help it reach it's full potential? I'm so very excited I never thought I'd see it bloom.

I would say : Keep doing whatever your doing.
Have you been doing anything different ? 🤔 ?
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

I agree I agree with Philip but want to add that I love your inventive use of hair clips as a plant support. Thumbs up

@greene, I see those clips on all the mini orchids sold at Trader Joe's and other places so they must be something already in circulation in the plant world. Clever! Thumbs up

Before the growers started selling clips shaped like bugs, we bought them in the hair department. Smiling

In my former life I was a merchandiser for Goody Products so those clips caught my eye when I saw them on a plant. Thumbs up
