Flower dieing for no reason



Okay, I got this lil guy from Metro store to place it on my desk. So I gave him plenty of water, lots sunlight and what not, but it does not want to develop again as it were when I bought it... What could be an issue?

that looks like a pretty large plant for such a small pot, it probably needs more room to grow, put it in a larger pot with some better soil.
also make sure the area isn't too hot, especially dry hot areas, had a plant sitting on a old CRT TV long ago, the heat from the TV pretty much killed it.

check soil PH. you almost certainly want a bigger pot (transplant it leaving as much of the earth around it as possible to prevent shock.)

Overwatering and too much sun can be a problem too.

Yeah I looked at it inside, and it still has that seal pack around the plant. So when I removed it, and put it back in, there is a lot room for some more soil. That would be a good lead.

Its an Orchid... It only blooms once a year... It doesn't need a lot of water at all... I was actually told that you should feed it ice cubes... They also do well in cooler temps so if you have had it outside... youuu probably cooked it...

That's an orchid and from the yellow leaf, too much water
(the black pot - does it has hole at the bottom?)

water and make sure the water drains through the holes at the bottom
orchids like alot of light , but indirect sunlight...

You can trim that dead branch, leave about 6 to 8 inches from the bottom
hope that it will spring new buds..

Correct, it has a hole on the bottom. I pulled off the seal and put in more soil just to feel up the gap as Ivan said. So I guess, I will make a hole in centre so water can flow all the way down.

orchids are the princess of flowers. damn hard to make it flower. have one and the thing just keeps growing my leaves but that's it! as others have said run water through it...

like dating a super model with a bad attitude. (i only wish i based this on experience )
