    It may not be getting enough cold in the winter. They need cold, dry winters to bloom and in the house, it may not be cool enough or kept dry enough.

    I would check to see what the exact zones are for your variety of prickly pear cactus. It may be able to survive outside year round where you live. If this is the case, in the fall, move it to a sheltered location, like under an eve, where it will not get too much water from rain or snow.
