    Well at least your plants are so healthy and plump looking. If the vegetative growth is very good then that means the plant will be able to support a lavish display of flowers when it decides to flower.

    There are other factors that might contribute to a plant to flower or not besides from the amount of light it receives like for example the exact temperature fluctuations or dry rest environment for a given period (could even be both). Even the daylength can also be a factor (the length of time a plant gets optimal light). For example like the Den anosmum ... it needs a combination of a temperature drop, dry rest period for a couple of weeks including a shortened daylength for the leaves to all drop and be replaced by flowers.

    Which means you will have to know the exact name of the plant you have and determine what its cultural habit is in order to initiate spiking and budding.

    There are some plants that may need to be a certain size or age before it can begin to initiate flowers too ..... these are some of the things that you have to keep in mind regarding your plant.

    I hope this info helps.

    Cheers!

    the Dendrobium needs a dry and cold period.
    the Schomburgkia is too smal en needs more light, full sun!

    I fertilize, but I think not as frequently as I should. Ive seen in the forum that I should fertilize weekly?
