How long between blooms?
Hi everyone. I'm a relatively new orchid owner and have a question about how frequently to expect blooms from my phal. It's a pico bahama phal that I got this past September (2013). It was blooming when I bought it and bloomed through January, I think. The garden center where I bought it said to cut off the stalk down to the body of the plant when it became brown and shrivelly with no flowers, so I did. It's very happy with adequate phal light, some orchid food, a big enough pot, and very happy new leaves and roots. But, I haven't seen any signs of new stalks at all. The orchid food is per the garden center's suggestion for flower growth. Should I be concerned? What should I do to promote stalk and flower growth.
