Fertilizing

Hi, it has been along time since my last visit good to be back. What fertilizer would one use to help my phals to bloom? One of my zygos has a flower spike already #2 zygo no flower spike yet. My ocidium no spike yet either. What would help these to flower? Thank you

Light is more the key to flowering rather than fertilizer. Fertilizer builds plant structure, Potassium effects the quality of the flowering.
If your plants aren't getting enough light, they will not flower.

Light is very important for flowering. It was very difficult for me to find information about the fertilization process, but finally I found the solution by providing a correct light to my orchids.
