Orchid bloom times can be quite variable depending on the growing environment and the hybridization of the plant.
For example, the hybrid Doritaenopsis, a cross between Doritis and Phalaenopsis, blends the summer bloom time of
the Doritis parent with the larger blooms of the Phalaenopsis parent creating nice hybrids that look much like a
Phal but bloom longer into the summer. Also, some orchids can be forced into bloom by altering the temperatures.
For example, Phalaenopsis growers may chill the growing area to trick the plants into thinking it is Fall and
setting a bloom spike accordingly. As a result, a plant that is in bloom when purchased is likely to adapt to
its environment and set its own bloom cycle based upon its new home. As an example, a plant that is in bloom
when purchased in the fall may bloom every winter after that in its new environment.
Some orchids bloom multiple times per year. Others will bloom successively, one bloom following another. Many
Phalaenopsis and Psychopsis will be in bloom nearly year-round. These are some of the challenges in specifying
specific bloom seasons for orchids. Below is a chart of the general bloom times for genera in our
“This fall I religiously followed your advice, creating an environment of shortened
days and lower temps in order to encourage blooming...I was successful. FINALLY!! Thank you, thank you!!
Both of my plants decided to bloom and they look beautiful. I wanted to share the good news and
my gratitude with you. Thanks again!”Laurie J.
“The potting medium you sent is gorgeous!! It's superior to the bark I've been
buying at Lowe's. I can't imagine what (my orchids) will do when I put them in your potting mix. It even
smells fresh!! Many, many thanks. I'll be ordering from you again.”
“Folks, My order [slotted pots and mix] arrived way before expected - and I am extremely happy with it! I harvested "babies" off my African violets to give as Christmas gifts this year - and they have tripled in size in the great potting soil and look so good - I can't wait to "gift" them!”Susan S.
“From beginning to end, rePotme has created a customer EXPERIENCE that is superior and delightful. The informative website contained many articles and videos that were extremely helpful to me as an orchid novice. There, I was guided to a potting mix (one of many!) that I wanted to try out. The checkout process was a breeze, and I especially enjoyed the fact that I could sign on with my Amazon account and did not have to create a brand new account”
“I have received my new Carousel Orchid Pot and Saucer in Orange Amber. I love it!! I would like to let you know that before I opened the wrapping to each piece (wrapped separately for those who may read this), rePotme won me over. Not only did I receive it within the expected time frame, your method and precise detail to packing it impressed me the most. It may not seem important to some, but I really appreciated it”
“My order arrived today and not only am I impressed with the speed of delivery, and how carefully it was all packed, but the quality of everything really surpassed my expectations. Between the supplies I ordered and your fantastic website with instructional texts, photos and videos, I feel very confident to move up to the next level of orchid growing”
