Phalenopsis in the conservatory today.


Phalenopsis in the conservatory today.

I love my Phals as they take very little looking after and are in flower practically the whole of the year......

Never grown any of these Hb, if they are that easy might have to try them. Anything for colour and easy to look after!:-)

So lovely.
I can never make them rebloom.

Klahanie, I just cut the stem back to a node lower down the stem when the flowers drop. A new branch with a set of buds develops and when they have flowered and dropped I cut it back again the same way until the original stem is down to the base. By then another stem is usually starting to grow.
They are easy Gralew and the flowers stay perfect for up to 3 months.

You make it sound so easy, Homebird!

Thanks for your note how to make them rebloom Homebird . I usually just cut the stem right off and the new one never appear. Next time I will try to cut the way you have described.
