   Common Problems Q&A

Why isn't my orchid blooming?

After your first orchid blooms die off it can take 2 months to a year to rebloom. Make sure your orchid is getting lots of bright indirect sunlight to promote blooms!

Why are the flower buds on my orchid drying up or falling off without blooming ?

This is generally a sign of less than ideal conditions for your orchid. Make sure it is not getting too much or too little water. It is also best for your orchid to be in temperatures between 60-80º F.
