I'm quite pleased that I managed to get this orchid to flower again after the original flowers had died off. Any ideas on how to keep it going as I think it was just luck...

Just cut the stem down to just above the next bud. The remaining length of stem should send out another stem. I keep cutting down each time its flowered until I am down to the base. By then if you are lucky a new stem will begin to grow out from the base. I use Orchid feed once a month too.

Thanks Homebird, I'll give it a go once these new flowers have run their course and see what happens!!
