Phalaenopsis (Moth) Orchid to re-flower

How do you get a phalaenopsis (moth) orchid to re-flower once it has stopped?

Once your orchid has stopped flowering, DO NOT put the plant outside. It is critical that the orchid remains in a warm growing environment that receives bright, indirect/filtered sunlight. The more light your orchid receives, the longer its blooms will last and the greater its chances of reblooming. At this time, apply a liquid feed - mix Daltons Premium Orchid Food with water and apply to the plant at the roots (don’t get the leaves wet). Be sure to follow the instructions on the box.

Cut the finished flower stem cut back to its base and kept the plant moist without overwatering. 


It is important to note that orchids have been grown in optimum glasshouse conditions by a specialist orchid grower who sells them to garden centres when the plants are in flower.

In the home, the time from when flowering has finished to when a new flower stem appears varies according to the time of the year and the care of the plant. With some TLC and a little patience, invariably a new flower stem will appear.
