Hi !
In need of help please:)

My Dad has a relatively new Orchid that was given to him a couple of years ago on his 90th Bday.
I only have experience of Moth Orchids and his is a different one , it finished blooming about 6 wks ago and now has a few new shoots.....should ALL the old stems be cut back to allow for this new growth.

All advice greatly accepted.....many thanks:)(y)

My wife just tidies them up, cutting down the old stems, then puts them on the kitchen window sill for three months, most produce new shoots by then, but not all of them.

Let me shout at a lady for you: @Larisa - We need your help to tell us this type of orchid please

Dendrobium Orchids???
Cymbidiums???

I bet the label says what we all know - orchid! Hm!

Reflowering Cymbidiums, Complete Care & Moving When in Bud


Have you got a useful label, @Upsy Daisy ?

With all my orchids, when the blooms die I prune back the spike to just above a healthy node. They often product new blooms from that node, so I must be doing something right ;)
