Christmas Cactus Plants

Christmas Cactus

Anonymous added on December 12, 2014 | Answered

Can I leave my Christmas cactus in total darkness till the buds start blooming? I have been leaving it in the closet at night and bring it out during the day, about 12 hours daily. I read somewhere it was ok to keep it in total darkness till you start to see buds. I appreciate any advice that you could give.

Yes, you should be giving it total darkness for at least 12-14 hours. Once you begin to see buds from, you can relocate the plant. This article will help with getting your Christmas cactus to bloom:
