Christmas cactus

We have two. One of them blooms every Christmas and has always looked healthy. The other usually blooms around Thanksgiving and looks kind of poorly, even though I treat them the same (maybe that's the problem).

The "poor" one is blooming NOW. What the heck's the matter with it?????? Any green thumbs out there?

  • how is their light? mine didn't bloom for years then we moved and they went crazzy and bloomed in july. the only thing that changed was the sun light they got from the window. they used to be on a south facing and now are on a north facing

  • Are they differene varieties? My MIL has a few and they don't always bloom together. One of them blooms in spring, and another has blooms year-round.

  • do the blooms look the same? the one blooming now might be a star cactus.... they look almost the same but the flowers look slightly different. they are sometimes called thanksgiving cactus (i used to have a red one)
