Thanksgiving cactus

gordstewartt added on November 5, 2016 | Answered

My thanksgiving cactus is 8" high and 12" wide and starting to bloom. I've had it for about a year. I live in southern British Columbia and not Brazil, so my plant is inside, and I soak my plant with water every 30 days. Question: now that my plant is starting to bloom, do I need to water more often?

    Yes, cacti use more water during the growing season and when blooming. But don't overdo it, because overwatering is still the biggest risk to an indoor cactus. Increase watering gradually and see how the plant responds. For example you could try watering every 2 weeks.
