You can make a Christmas cactus bloom during the holidays by stopping watering about 1 month ahead of time. This will simulate a dormancy period, and the plant will bud.

Christmas cactus need three things for good bloom. Night time temperature of around 55-60 degrees F, Short days, and a dormant period with reduced water starting in late September. Dormancy should last about two months. The plants should be repotted when they become root bound usually about every three years.

Keep in indirect light during day and at nighttime make sure area is dark; It requires at least 12 hours of uninterrupted darkness starting approximately the middle of October. This should continue for 6-8 weeks and keep temperature approximately 50 degrees. Water a little less; dry in between.
