Christmas Cactus always looses buds and never get flowers (Have propane heat) so what do I do to get flowers.?

Fine healthy plants, lots of buds, assume budblast is the problem, Ones I root for others bloom fine. I put them outside, north side of house in the summer and leave until after 50 degree nights have hit, but no bloom.

    Your Christmas Cactus http://easybloom.com/plantlibrary/plant/christmas-... needs 50 degree nights AND 12-14 hours of darkness in November for late December bloom. If they're outside, they could be getting too much light.
