    What type of orchid? There are thousands, each with its own cultural requirements.

    Agree with Ray. That said, nine times out of ten it is lack of sufficient lighting that keeps an orchid that is of blooming size from not blooming. Try increasing the quality of light. Go slowly so that you do not burn the leaves. The leaf color should be a very light green in most cases.

    cheers,

    If your plant is a phalaenopsis, light is not really a factor, as they love deep shade.

    They also grow best if kept really warm, but many will no reliably initiate a flower spike until they have seen an average growing temperature of about 10-15F lower than the average they have been experiencing, for about ten days to two weeks.
