You continue to care for your orchid even when it's resting.
Trim away the spent flower stem. Remember to always use clean sterile tools when working with orchids.
Maintain the proper light, water once a week, fertilize with a balanced fertilizer at half strength every couple of weeks.
Your orchid does like cooler evening temperatures around 65 to 75 degrees.
