Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

😭🤬😭🤬😭🤬😭🤬 My OH knocked this flowering stem off my orchid when he closed the kitchen blind!!! Will it live if I put it in a vase? So many blooms, I don’t want them to die!! I’m so mad!! #advice

Thats very sad. It should do i think. Much like any cut flower but put a bit of plant food or sugar in with it not sure how long it will last. It's a beautiful orchid. I dont know as much as other people on here about orchids so you might want to double check with @jlsardina

The spike won’t grow any plant. But you can put it in water and the blooms should last a few weeks. Leave the remaining portion of the spike on the plant and it might throw out more buds for you. Only cut a spike of it turns brown or if the plant needs to work on its root system.

@ukgardentags @teamgardentags Just a query as to why random pictures are ending up on my wish list? I keep having to delete pics that I know I have not chosen to add. 🤷🏼‍♀️ how can I make sure that I am asked if I want to add something to my wish list. I am sure I had that as a setting before?

Not only do I have the flower spike that started growing a few weeks ago (right), I also have a flower spike growing off an old one (left)! Good job I didn’t cut it down after it finished flowering ages ago! 😊 06/11/18 #orchid #phalaenopsis #marillion #tinytreasures #houseplant #indoorplant

@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom when I know the stalks are dying/done and no more flowers will grow, I cut it to just a few centimetres above the level of pot. The light brown stalks on the right are stems I’ve cut down in the past. I could probably cut them down lower now to be honest.

Do you think it is worth me re-potting this orchid at the same time as I do my other? @pixierose This one is healthy and only just finished flowering.

@bluefox23 you could put it in a slightly bigger pot yes and give some fresh bark. The roots look great 👍🏼 and healthy 😁👍🏼
