Ok, so, here goes.....
I left my Thanksgiving cactus in the window last night and the temperature went below freezing 23° The pot was cold. Will it be ok? Feel like such a bad parent

Was it 23-degrees *inside*? Actually, some cold air (at some point in time) is necessary for promoting more abundant blooming. I'm not sure of all the intricacies of the "max 12 hours" and "requires cold temperatures" for good blooming, though.
