How many times will an orchid plant flower?

    How many times will an orchid plant flower?

    How many times will an orchid plant flower? Mine had 7 blooms when I first bought it, then it flowered a second time with 4 blooms. Now they look about to fall off and the big green leaves at the bottom are not looking so well. I fear for its well-being. Please advise.

    I think it blooms and blooms and blooms as long as it has the right amount of sunshine and shade and just enough water, but not too much.  I love orchids, but have never had much luck with them. When I speak to members of the local Orchid Club, they tell me what I should be doing and I'm doing it, but my orchids don't bloom well like theirs.  Maybe it's like horseback riding.  The orchid has to know you're in charge  and knowledgeable or it won't co-operate.

    Unfortunately, I am a disaster with orchids.  I've owned several and never gotten one to flower a second time.  Good luck!!

    we received a nice orchid as door prize at a baby shower and it was in bloom.  we give it three ice cubes every Saturday and after 5 months, it has bloomed again (seven flowers).  i forget how many blooms it had on it the first time.  we understand that they (orchids) can live forever; and why not smile  we live in Colorado, so not a lot of heat or humidity (unlike Hawaii, where we moved from).  perhaps you're "overloving" your orchid?  three ice cubes, once a week.  ours is in partial sun...

    Your orchid should flower repeatedly. I often buy orchids in pots and display them inside my house while they're flowering, and then transfer them to my garden, by un-potting them and attaching them to trees at eye level. I then almost ignore them (not quite, but close), and they flower year after year.
