Indoor Christmas cactus plant

Zone Newark, Delaware Zone7 | Anonymous added on December 22, 2017 | Answered

My Christmas cactus has just started to bloom. There are some flowers that have opened completely; however others look wet, flat and sticky to touch. I pulled them off very gently since they were not going to open. What could be the cause ? [email protected]
