How do I restore my Christmas Cactus?

I believe my apartmen was way too cold this winter, which has my cacti looking limp! I've reported them and it's been about two weeks, one looks like it's rebounding, but the other one doesn't!!! What can I do?

    If you have an outdoor covered area and you temperatures are past the freezing pint put it outside and let mother nature take it course. When you re-potted it did you use cactus soil?

    Christmas Cactus thrives on neglect. It is used to hot arid temps. Be careful not to leave it in the sun. Best to place it in a south facing window and water very little once a month. It will come back to life and The light should help it to produce flowers as long as the room/ Window is not too cold...summer is coming. Do Not Leave it Outside in Direct Sunlight!!
