Orchids are very popular for their flowers. This majestic plant blooms at least twice a year, and at least two months after the last flower has faded.
Here are a few tips on how to care for your plant’s flowers:
• First bloom : once the flower has fallen off, cut off the stem above the second node
• Second bloom : once the flower has fallen off, trim the stem down to the base of the plant
In both cases, cutting off the stem stimulates your orchid and makes it possible to obtain new growth, and therefore a new flower, more quickly.
Exception: for some rare orchid varieties, such as the monkey orchid, there is only one flowering period, between spring and autumn.
