After the first blooms on your Orchid plant die off, it can take anywhere from 2 months to a year to rebloom. If it has been a year and you still don’t see any new buds forming, follow these steps to help encourage reblooming.

Is your orchid getting enough light?

Make sure your Orchid is getting as much bright indirect light as possible. If you have your orchid in an area of lower light, that could be the reason it is not reblooming.

Have you fertilized your plant recently?

Your orchid is grown in sphagnum moss, which contains no nutrients. During spring and summer, you should be fertilizing your orchid with an orchid fertilizer every time you water. Making sure your orchid gets proper nutrients will allow it to rebloom.
