Encouraging your Zygopetalum orchid to re-flower:
Cut away the entire flower stem after it has finished blooming. The plant will produce new shoots, which can flower once they are fully grown. You should give the plant a rest period of 10 weeks, to stimulate flowering place in a cooler position and reduce watering. Water the plant once every two weeks during this period. Put the plant back in its former location after the rest period.
