It didn't bloom again until about 1980 when we moved into a different house where it bloomed in profusion for many years. Christmas Cacti like cooler temperatures and natural light. We kept the cactus in a corner of the dining room with the heat register shut and seldom turned on the lights in that room in the evening.
Once when I transplanted it, a branch broke off. I was able to grow that into another plant.
Depending on the year, I have had the cactus bloom as early as Thanksgiving or as late as Easter.
I now have several other smaller cacti in different colours. Below you can see a pale pink one and a vivid scarlet one blooming together in the same pot at the same time as my fushia one. This doesn't happen very often.
Here is a closeup of one of the scarlet blooms. Although they are not scented and do not last very long, I enjoy them immensely when I have them. They remind me of ballerinas wearing fancy tutus.
