Can orchids live forever?
Moreover, how long do orchids live for?
With good care and regular maintenance, an orchid plant may live for a lifetime -- 100 years, or more.
Secondly, how do you get an orchid to bloom again? When your orchid stops blooming, begin fertilizing it every other week with a balanced houseplant fertilizer (20-20-20) mixed at half strength. Do not water your Just Add Ice Orchid with 3 ice cubes on the weeks you fertilize your plant.
Also to know is, do orchids eventually die?
Orchids naturally drop their blooms after a couple of months. Also at this time the bloom stems dies back as well. If this is your only concern then your orchid is fine. It's not dying it just preparing for next years blooms by growing new roots and leaves once all the flowers have dropped and the stems have died back.
Why ice cubes are bad for orchids?
Ice Cubes Do Not Prevent Overwatering in Orchids But with a couple of ice cubes slowly melting and being absorbed by the potting compound down to the roots, they say this will never happen because it provides a controlled amount of water and optimal absorption.
