    Ha! Mine does that sometimes on the oddest months. My grandma and mom used to put those in a dark basement or summer certain times of the year to keep them on schedule but I don't remember when. Beautiful bloom when they do emerge though...

    Mine is a faithful "Thanksgiving cactus." I think they just have their own personalities!

    i'm with hobie on them having their own personalities.......i had one last year that started blooming in september? had never happened before, and it didn't stop blooming until january or february i think. this past fall it didn't bloom at all? what's up with that? have had the cactus for years, and really enjoy it.

    Maybe "Surprise Cactus" is a better suited name.
