Orchid stem (spike)
I was given an orchid 2 years ago, it bloomed and then as time went by it started to die. I followed the instructions on the tag but nothing seem to help until I received another one last year. I happened to go to Lowe's around the same time and they had bags of fertilizer and planting mix for orchids. I of course bought some and it helped the one that was dying, but the stem (spike) by this point had totally died and was removed from the plant.
My question is this.. how long before a new stem (spike) will grow back or will it ever grow back?
