    Default How to ensure a rebloom on an orchid

    Hi everyone


    I recently bought 3 phalaenopsis orchids. One plant has a spike on it although the spike has been cut probably because it has already bloomed. I'm not sure, I forgot to ask when I bought it. It was cut approximately 1 inch above the bulgy thing (node) found on the spike. Also it has no ID. The spike probably measures around 10 inches from the base.

    My question is if it's still possible for the plant to re-bloom? The vendor told me that the color of the flower is yellow.

    Hoping someone answers me. Many thanks.


    (History why I bought it- I live in the Philippines and here in my city we have a yearly festival wherein one of the highlights is the selling of different varieties or orchids in a plaza and so when I went to the place, I bought 3 just out of curiosity. Even though there were plenty of orchids in bloom, I decided to buy those which are not in bloom. I wanted to experience what its like to actually be able to take care of a plant that will eventually bloom because I took good care of it.)

    Sorry I'm new to this. I don't know much about phalaenopsis or other orchids but I'm learning.

    It is quite common for phalaenopsis to rebloom from an old spike if it is still green in colour and has a few nodes left on it. Yellow phalaenopsis are very pretty. I agree that there is nothing more satisfying than to see a plant bloom for the first time under your care. Indeed the sense of achievement is almost intoxicating. Good luck and persevere .
