Thanksgiving cactus ?

jessiec777(Washington State 5)December 29, 2011

I have tried to search the forum and google with no luck. I'm wondering what to do when the blooms on them wilt. Do you let them dry up and fall off on their own? Or do you pinch them off? I'm sorry if this has been asked before. I just couldn't seem to find it anywhere...Thanks :-)
