Consequently, how do you get an orchid to bloom again?

When your orchid stops blooming, begin fertilizing it every other week with a balanced houseplant fertilizer (20-20-20) mixed at half strength. Do not water your Just Add Ice Orchid with 3 ice cubes on the weeks you fertilize your plant.

Additionally, do orchids bloom all the time? As an example, a plant that is in bloom when purchased in the fall may bloom every winter after that in its new environment. Some orchids bloom multiple times per year. Others will bloom successively, one bloom following another. Many Phalaenopsis and Psychopsis will be in bloom nearly year-round.

Just so, how long does it take for an orchid to rebloom?

Phalaenopsis are among the few orchids that will rebloom in home conditions. The spike should be cut between the scar that's left by the first flower and the last node (that little lump) on the stem. One of the lower nodes will then initiate and produce flowers within eight to 12 weeks.

How often should orchids be watered?

In general, water once a week during the winter and twice a week when the weather turns warm and dry. The size of your orchid container also helps determine how often you need to water, regardless of climate conditions. Typically, a 6-inch pot needs water every 7 days and a 4-inch pot needs water every 5 to 6 days.
