I just received one of these darlings. It is not a sequensial bloomer, correct? I can cut the spike when finished? Also, would you say a bright southeast window, several hours of dappled sun in west window or neither? Thanks

I don't believe that there exists a truly ever blooming orchid. How about this strategy.....focus your collecting on varieties that have long lasting flowers, reliably flower and flower multiple times a year. You also should make sure your collection includes varieties with bloom times in all 4 seasons. If you select wisely, you can have blooms 365 days a year.

In terms of always having flowers, a small reed stem Epidendrum ellipticum. Has been in continuous bloom for about 18 months in a 3" clay pot. I have just moved it into a 4" pot.

Paphiopedilum from the cochlepatalum complex (liemieanum, primulinum, chamberlainianum, vicoria-reginae) keep setting new blooms on the same spike, with just a few days between flowers. I have counted as many as 35 bracts on the spikes of mature plants.

If you have enough light, consider Vanda (Papilionanthe) teres or one of it's hybrids. This species keeps producing additional buds (similar to some of the yellow phalaenopsis hybrids). I have Vanda Pink Fairy (V teres x Neofinetia falcata), which has bloomed on 3 spikes for the past 4-5 months (and are still producing new buds), and it has produced two more spikes, which will start opening in a couple of weeks (from a 4" net pot).

This plant bloomed the first time in Aug of 2014, and should be in continuous bloom from now on.

For shear blooming power you can't beat Psychopsis Mendenhall. It blooms off same spike for years with maybe a very short rest during winter months. As it develops more spikes it is rarely with out a flower. Never cut the spikes and it just keeps blooming. Wonderfully weird flowers also. Mine grows S/H in a large coffee container. Extra bonus, I find it super easy to grow

Default Phal. LongPride 'M-P1731'

It looks like it has been a while since anyone added an orchid to your 'everlasting bloom list'. I do not know if 7 to 8 months qualifies.

But this Taiwan mini phal had an extended long bloom life (the plant now is still very healthy without blooms). There is one very interesting thing: it dramatically changed colors. The red pics are early when I bought it and the purple pics are from when it was outside on the balcony bamboo rack. It doesn't even look like the same plant, but it is!

I was told that red phals can do this. I wish that it could re-bloom the next time with the red color, but it is always outside on our balcony, so it probably will be the purple color for the rest of its life. I like the red better!

Spathoglottis great in the yard if you have the climate for them. Good as cut flowers for indoors. Variety of colors.
