Orchid blooms after 5 years! – About Orchid set back
Today we take a look at one of my oldest orchids which has not bloomed for me in 5 years! Here’s why!
🦋 More info below! 🦋
Brassavola ‘Jiminy Cricket’ is an orchid which my mom spotted at a grocery shop for me, so it has great sentimental value! Check the initial video on it here https://youtu.be/6VFUMjMEkXU
The reason is a prolonged state of set back. Repotting and setup errors, moving to a new country and lack of water caused this orchid to simply not grow mature enough growths in order to bloom.
Core structure of orchids need to be in good order, otherwise the orchid will not develop normally.
