Why, oh why, won’t my orchid bloom? When I brought it home in the dead of winter, I was been determined to keep it alive. After the original flowers fell off, I snipped the stem right below the bud, as I had read to do. I keep it in our bathroom, where it seems to enjoy the steady temperature, little sunlight and moist air. Every ten days or so I give the pot a 30 second dunk in warm water. But six months have passed, and even though new leaves are growing at the base, there is no sign of new flowers. What should I do now? I’ve followed most of the instructions from the Orchid society, on how to care for a Phalaenopsis, moth orchid but I’m just not sure what’s up. Should I just be patient? Do I need to repot? Snip the stalk again? Fertilize? Any advice from those with first-hand orchid experience would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! — Angela M.
