Every year, my cacti would give two beautiful showers of bloom, the first around beginning of Semtember and the second around November.
I have both Thanksgiving and Christmas cactus, although I prefer the former. I plant them in chopped tree fern and feed them once a month with Osmocote.
It seems these plants don't like the sun so I keep them, except one, in the shade house. The other one I place on my front porch which receives more sun and it turns red all over!
These are very faithful bloomers and easy growers. I really love them.
