How long do orchids bloom: and how to make them last longer?

A question that is often asked is how long orchids bloom. Orchids are known for their delicate flowers – exquisitely shaped petals and colors ranging from the purest white to golden yellow to the deepest cherry red. But their blooms don’t last forever. In fact, experts say orchids will bloom for six to 10 weeks.

However, they can fade before six weeks and persist for more than 10 weeks. The quality of attention and orchid care you give your plants makes the difference between flowers that fade and wither almost as quickly as they appear and blooms that last for weeks. Everything from how you water orchids, when to repot orchids, and even knowing how to prune orchids all play a role in flower longevity.
