Hi Kevinator, my friend
You was born on May 9, 1999 - is this true ?
I am asking because I was also born on the 9th(!) day of a month - though not in May ...
On Fertilisation :
(a) If any orchid plant is beginning to grow a leaf shoot, a good cultivator supports the plant by spraying
.... a 'N'-dominated fertiliser onto it's roots.
(b) If any orchid plant is beginning to grow a flower spike, the support would be a 'P'-dominated fertiliser.
(c) The above measures, (a) and (b), are only applied when one or more leaf shoots and flower spikes, respectively,
.... have indeed materialised.
(d) If any orchid plant is producing nothing - i.e. neither leaf shoot(s) nor flower spike ... do not give any fertiliser.
(e) 'Flowering Season' is a myth - orchids flower when they please ... - hence do not spray 'P'-dominated fertiliser
.... upon any orchids based on your wishful thinking animated by this myth ...
Returning to your project :
I have already posted
anything you need to know on 2 previous threads here on Orchid Board :
"Understanding Coryanthes", and "Stanhopea platyceras bud drop".
I suggest that you absorb that material during the coming week(s) ...
Best Regards to you,
