How to make orchid grow and flower?


How do I get my orchid plant to flower and grow? The leaves are growing and look beautiful but no signs of more orchids. I cut the flowering stems down to one inch above bottom because they died. Please help this poor gardener. - Marie -

    To fully answer your question, we need to know what kind of orchid you have, how you are caring for it (including fertilization schedule), and when it last bloomed.
