Hi my U.longifolia started to flower then just stoped its been the same for a couple of months it does not look like its dieing but that its stoped growing :?

Any ideas what i could do? I was thinking of giving it some or orchid feed.

Here is a pic as i said its been the same for couple months you can see flower buds but they are not delveloping.

Thanks :)

Maybe the plant aborted the flowerstalks. You can try to give it some orchid feed, but only small ammounts! I don't think it will help though. Try to give the plant a bit more light and plenty of water, we'll see what will happen then. You could also cut off some of the stalks, it's always easier for the plant to develop one or a few flowerstalks.

So if I cut some of them it might put it's energy in to the remaining stalks?
Will try all you have advised :)

Thank you for your help

You've gotten good advice already.

Has anything changed? The stalks aren't getting longer? U. longifolia tends to like it warm, wet & bright. While I wouldn't do anything drastic that might make them abort - keeping them wet may help. It naturally takes a while for any large-flowering utric to develop it's flowers. I haven't timed mine but it's more than a month iirc...
