Q.Christmas Cactus Budding and Blooming

Zone South Carolina | Trudy added on November 20, 2011 | Answered

Large Christmas cactus which has been left outside on covered porch until now has many buds that appear to be ready to pop open any day. I would like to hold off the blooming until closer to Christmas. . . mid-December. Any advice on keeping buds from blooming right away?
