Keep in a cool room for the next month, water sparingly, don't feed at all. Our two are back in the front porch were the temperature will drop down to 5˚ if it is cold (we've got a wee greenhouse heater in there). As they are cacti they need periods of dryness to get on and flower again. With luck you'll see more flowers around Easter time.
