I have never yet managed to get one into flower again, Kath!

Linda and Susanne this is the Orchid feed I am using

I certainly have the knack to get them to as soon as they stop blooming I prune back to a node and leave I used to use to different feeds in growth and in bloom .

But since I have used rain mix use it ever time I need to water and my leaves are still shiny.

Linda I water with feed only when roots are white if or pot light they dont need but .

When pot heavy and roots green no need to water.

In summer in light rain I put them outdoors.

Would recommend this feed.

Our orchids do bloom again but I hate that period while they lie there, doing nothing except gathering dust.

I steer my husband away from the orchid sections at garden centres!

Must say your orchid looks great.

Thanks Eirlys I have to say mine dont gather dust and seem to rebloom very quickly .

I just adore then.

And I do tend to buy now when they have 3 or more stems .
