Get Your Orchid to Rebloom

Bring on the new bloom! You can renew a fading orchid by pruning in just the right place. The perfect snip can bring you weeks of new blooms. Take a look at our inside scoop on making your plant put on new color.

To give your orchid a longer life, try this. Orchids have always fascinated gardeners. They have a very delicate beauty that unfortunately gives them a reputation for being difficult to grow. They're not seen as being terribly hardy. In fact, orchids only bloom once a year unless you know the secret. The normal bloom cycles about 3 months, so once you the flowers beginning to fade, you wanna take your clippers and you're gonna snip right above the node right here. Now, this is gonna seem painful to do this because they are beautiful flowers you are just gonna be chopping off, but this will actually force the orchid to send out a secondary shoot of new blooms, and this extra shoot should give you blooms for about another month or two, almost doubling your time to get to enjoy your orchid. Some bonus blooms to help the orchid's reputation.
