Thanks a lot everyone. For the people that asked why their Cactus doesn't bloom it could be a couple of different reasons. One is it takes some species many years before they bloom. Some also need their day period shortened a little to 'feel' like it is time to bloom and also it may not be getting strong enough light. I would have to know the specific details to know for sure why it isn't blooming.
