Hi, I purchased a Phalaenopsis Orchid a while back. The last flower just fell off yesterday. I wanted to know, what do I have to do so it can bloom again? Do I need to repot it?

Orchids bloom best when they're slightly rootbound so report your orchid only every 3-4 years. If the last flower on the stem fell off, the stem will die down on its own. When it is dead you can cut it off just below the foliage. Your orchid will rest for awhile and then send up a new flowering stem. Enjoy!
