Fertilize Or Not To Fertilize During Blooming

dbrowne(7a/DC)January 27, 2012

This past year I have had success in re-blooming a phalaenopsis. I have one that is blooming now, the question, is it necessary to fertilize when it is in full bloom?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

In my experience with all the phals I have. No matter if it's in bloom or not I continue to fertilize every other week with my general orchid fertilizer. Since I fertilize every other week, I don't use full strength fertilizer every time. I cut the scoop in half and fertilize that way. Ive always had beautiful phals and I continue to have them yea after year. It's prolly more of a personal preference, but I don't have any problems. Best of luck with your phal.
