Right growing conditions will help produce many flowers along the stems. Giving them full sunlight with well-draining soil. Protect them from the harsh sun as they can be marked. Like most cactus water them in their growing season and allow them to dry out completely before watering again.  Reduced the watering in their resting period.  Too much water in water can cause roots to rot.  Can give them some fertilization but with low nitrogen during the active growth period.
