The holiday cactus is not a true cactus so it doesn't like sunlight shining right on it. It will be happier with bright but indirect light or an east window where the light is less harsh. The soil should dry out between waterings but not desert cacti dry. Here is an interesting article on this tropical plant: https://web.extension.illinois.edu/dmp/palette/071209.html
