I planted my peacock orchids on either side of my gardden bench. The soil is mostly clay like. They haven't bloomed since 2008 when I moved here. What should I do to make them bloom?

I used to have a patch of peacock orchids and they often didn't bloom until September, and usually just sporadicly. I ended up digging them up and throwing them away.

Thank you for the information. I love seeing you post. I'll keep an eye on them all September and see if they do anything. I've got my fingers crossed.

My glad's just started showing signs that they would flower. They didn't last year but I think its because the bulbs were too small. I expect they'll flower in a few more weeks
