My Christmas Cactus - one of the branches is starting to break if I don't do something soon. It is very large (2 big branches) and probably 7-8 yrs. old. It is blooming its head off right now!! Beautiful. What do I do? It is starting to split about 2" to 3" inches above the soil. It is also very healthy. Please help!!
