Phalaenopsis orchid is one of the most beautiful indoor plant. It is usually given or bought already blooming.

It is the best selling flower for a room, has the most spectacular flowering and seems to entail the most problems. Orchid arouses passions culminating for true plant lovers in a variety of collections that are more or less spectacular.

But there comes a time when flowers fall and the owner might begin to wonder what went wrong. The average period of flowering for orchids is 3 months.

Usually the blooming process for orchids occurs 2-3 times per year, and during the break it may take several months to bloom.

I will offer some tips that will hasten the flowering process for orchids.

  1. Create differences of temperature. Put the pot at night in a cool place up to 59 F.
  2. Reduce the amount of nitrogen fertilizer, but add more Phosphorus because it stimulates flowering.
  3. Moisten the air around the plant.
  4. Put the pot with orchids in a dark place for 5 days.After 3 weeks the orchid should blossom. This method is only suitable for healthy and mature plants.
  5. Also, instead of watering the orchid, place several ice cubes in the pot and the plant will bloom faster.
  6. Moreover, if you notice that a non- bloomed orchid grows roots or leaves intensely, it means that it is during its development period. Only after this process is complete it will arrive the blooming period. Have patience.
