Yearly Plant Care Schedule for a Christmas Cactus. Spring - Fertilize after flowering. Summer - Move outdoors to shady area. Maintain water and fertilizer. Fall - Move indoors before frost. Maintain drier soil. Winter - Put it in a location where it will get four to six hours of indirect sunlight. Keep soil moist.
