Why is my orchid losing flowers?
Likewise, why are the flowers on my orchid falling off?
A drastic change in temperature, light or humidity can shock the orchid, making its flowers and buds fall off. Older orchid flowers fall off naturally once they're done blooming, starting from closest to the crown towards the tip of the spike. They should fall off one by one.
Also, do the flowers on orchids grow back? Plants may bloom for months until spent flowers fall from plants. Since other orchid varieties will not bloom again from the same flower spike, you can cut their spikes back to the base of plants after flowers fall.

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.
