Default How do you get Haraella retrocalla to bloom?

I must be the only person who canít get theirs to bloom 🤦🏼*♀️
Mine gets a lot of artificial light (enough to send my Phals into a spiking frenzy) and I water it about once a week. Iíll admit I let the sphagnum dry out more than it should (mounted on a wood slab), and it doesnít always get misted. Could watering be the cause of no blooms? Iíve had it a little less than 5 months.
Sorry to revive an old post!

Hi Just Rosie, I've moved your post to it's own thread, you're more likely to get some responses to your question if it's not at the bottom of a revived thread.

About your question, it could be that you need to be patient. I grow mine potted, and living with my Phals, and after producing several flowers over the spring, summer and early fall, it hasn't done much since then. (Note that I've only had it since early spring!)

Completely orchid obsessed and loving every minute of it....

The size of the plant matters, but if it is mounted, it definitely needs to be watered more often than once a week. Mine grows in a mounded pot, with my phals but closer to the window, so it has plenty of light. I try to water once every 2 or 3 days to soak the roots that are on top of the medium, even if the pot itself is moist. Mine has two blooming spikes at the moment.
