Orchids

Zone Cincinnati, Ohio | Jerome Michael Galvin added on April 1, 2018 | Answered

Newbie. Once an orchid drops its flowers and goes dormant, should I stop watering it? Can I store it away from its normal place in the light? If kept out of the light, will it still re-emerge and bloom again?

This will need to keep growing as normal. These will not have a true dormancy. Do not trim the stems, as they can flower another time from these. Keep it in its normal environment and it can flower again next year. Make sure to fertilize with a quarter strength orchid fertilizer every two weeks. And every week during flowering.
