One of the most mentioned problems I hear from people who have Holiday Cactus is that the buds are dropping before they open.

There are several reasons that buds will drop and they include exposure to drafts, insufficient light, temperatures are too high, under or over watering, and low humidity. Keep away from heat vents, fireplaces and other sources of hot air.

Holiday Cactus like to be on the dry side while forming buds, during bloom time and when they are not growing which is from October to April.

They like cooler temperatures and longer nights to form buds and when the buds begin to open you can move them to a place where they can be seen and admired. This could be why some people say do not move your cactus during the bud forming stage.

This Cubit has been inactive for several years due to the fact that JB had a slight accident and had to sell all her plants and close her business. She has been slow recovering and anxious to again share her passion for plants in 2020.
