    Purchased Cornerstone Compass. Unfortunately created a new empty sheath. What can I do to correct it?

    Wait? Some empty sheaths come into bloom months later, even after they are all brown and dead looking. Other times the plant just isn't quite ready to flower and will often bloom on the next new growth. Keep the plant happy and give it time. If you just got it, moving it may have stressed it enough to retard the bloom or keep it from blooming.

    thank you for your input. No, I got the plant in February along with another one as well. The other one is
    blooming again and very happy. The same shoot that has the empty sheath has produced many new roots
    at the base of that stem. Perhaps that's where it's putting its energy right now.

    Will wait with "bated" breath for my gorgeous orchid to bloom again. Just a wee bit
    frustrated.
