Q.Orchid Growing

Zone 97504 | Anonymous added on October 3, 2022 | Answered

I purchased two Orchids this summer and they bloomed beautifully. Now the blooms are gone. I need to know: 1. Do I cut the stem or leave it? Have read that sometimes the old stem will rebloom. 2.When do I fertilize the orchids? 3. Do I leave the plants in the same pot that they came in? 4/ What fertilizer do I use for them. Is there a special time to “force their blooms” in the spring with fertilizer? If so, when and how much. As you can see from my questions, I don’t know much about orchids, but lov e them and want to be able to continue to grow them with blooms. Thanks so much for your help.
