- 1). Locate the nodes on the stem. The nodes look like two brown notches that encircle the stem just below where the flowers were.
- 2). Sterilize sharp pruning shears or a straight razor blade in a 2-to-1 vinegar solution or a 10-percent bleach solution.
- 3). Make a cut halfway or three-quarters of the way down the stem, about 1½ inches above the node. Remove the top part of the spike and discard it.
- 4). Feed and water your orchid as you normally would; in two to three months, you can expect new buds. In another month, a new flower will bloom.
