Why phalaenopsis does not bloom

Good afternoon, tell me. Phalaenopsis was presented on March 8, which is already practically fading, but with two arrows. Somewhere in weeks 2 finally faded and to this day does not drive out the shooter. Maybe you need some kind of fertilizer? Or a period of rest?


The absence of flowering for six months is not an indicator, you need to worry if phalaenopsis is not a color for a year or more. But, since there are no seasons for this flower, it can be stimulated to bloom. First of all, feed 1 time in 10 days with complex fertilizer (phosphorus, potassium, magnesium) without nitrogen.

If the root system is not depleted, use the method of simulating the rainy season. Immerse the pot in water (35 degrees) for 30 minutes. After watering 3-5 days in a row, then stop watering for 2 weeks. After the time has passed, switch to normal watering mode.

Another way to make it bloom is by spraying with the addition of Epin (5-10 drops) regularly 3 times a day.

Here's another way: let a couple out in the bathroom and put the phalaenopsis pot in the bathtub and pour plenty of water from the shower. So flower buds awaken.
