My Thanksgiving/Christmas cactus is just staring to show buds. It gets watered when the soil looks dry, which is about once a week with a diluted fertilizer water. (all my house plants get this treatment) I have found in the past that if I move the cactus close to the time of blooming that all the buds will fall off. It gets a lot of light all year long. So having said that, my recommendation is to find it a spot with lots of light out of direct sun light and drafts, fertilize/water when dry and don't move it. If you have to move it wait until after blooming is done. I've also had success putting it outside in the summer, bringing it inside in August.
To love what you do and feel that it matters...how could anything be more fun! Katherine Graham
