Encouraging your Cymbidium orchid to re-flower:

After flowering cut out the faded flower spikes. To get the plant to bloom again it should be put out in the garden from June until September in a sheltered spot away from direct sunlight. Give the plant very little water especially through July. The plant will produce new flowers as a result of the temperature fluctuations between day and night.
