I have an orchids which has previously bloomed. I cut the stalk back and now have leaves with aerial roots growing on the stalk.Very excited as I usually don't have much luck with rebooting. What should I do with it?

    Feed it some fertilizer once a month at half strength, and keep it in an area that receives more than 12 hours of light a day. This will encourage new leaves and shoots. When it has recovered from flowering, then you can move it to an area that Gets 12 hours of light or less per day. They are photoperiodic, and will only bloom when the days are shorter.
