I have an orchid and has now started dropping its petals, will it get buds. if so when



If it's a Moth Orchid, a Phaelaenopsis, then wait until the last flower falls off the stem, then cut the stem off just above the bottom node - the little scale on the stem. Then, in time, it should produce a new stem, either from the node, or from between the leaves.
