Hi everyone! I have a question for you beautiful people. Can a Thanksgiving cactus be fertilized all year around or just during certain times of year? TIA

Fertilizer
The Thanksgiving cactus should be fertilized regularly throughout the growing season to help promote blooming in the fall. Apply a balanced, diluted liquid fertilizer every two weeks during the spring, summer, and early fall. After the blooms have dropped, stop fertilizing the cactus until new growth begins in the spring.
