New flowers on orchid.

I have several orchids all of which have taken a long time to produce new flowering shoots. However none have actually produced any new flowers. New buds have shrivelled and dropped off before opening. Any suggestions??


  • What position are they in ? 
  • On a window sill
  • I imagine it’s too hot and dry for them. You need to basically increase the humidity . I personally would move the orchid away from the sill . I place my orchids on side tables in sunlight but away from the lack of humidity and burn of the window. I think yours are suffering bud blast. Mine have and after some position changes they have recovered. Hope that’s helpful 
  • Yes thanks. I’ll try that. How often do you feed yours?
