ok so im noticing bumps on my one christmas cactus... the weird thing is that its planted in the same pot as a few different cacti and they are fine, show no signs of whats on this one, so does anyone know what it is? i sprayed it down with water/alcohol/soap mixture just in case its some sort of pest, but the bumps almost seem like they are part of the leaf.

there just were water may be held. trust me i have grow crristmas cactus since i was two years old and i am thirdteen. if you sprayed it there is nothing to be worried about. my advice is to agnore it. my 11 year old plants have the same thing. christmas cacti are easy and low maintanence houseplants and are rewarding and long lived. some other people may post that it can be a pest or disease but they are wrong.enjoy your christmas cactus knowling it is healthy and i hope the best for yours.

I agree with you, teengardener1888. It looks like some type of oedema. Perhaps check the drainage in the pot?
