Beautiful , I struggle with Orchids very rarely do they bloom again ,I have one that does I think that was an accident as I threw it out and not long afterwards it bloomed outside in the garden !

You have some lovely orchids Waddy. I have two orchids that the neighbours bought me. One is three years old and the other four. I cut the flower stalk off near the bottom of the main stem to just above a bud when they have finished flowering. I then repot the whole plant in fresh orchid compost making sure the airial roots are still in the air on the top. I try to water with rainwater and let the plant soak then empty the water from the bottom of the pot. They rot if they are left in water. I feed when I see some growth coming on new stems with flowerbuds. I put my orchids in a window facing NW in the summer and give them more sun in the winter. Hope this helps, this is only what I do. Linda.

It sounds as if your Orchids are all very well looked after Linda :))

I try to look after them Waddy because they flower for such a long time and give so much pleasure.
