Orchids

I keep a few orchids, they're all Phalaenopsis, except for one Cymbidium and one Miltonia (and a couple of offshoots from these that I've planted in another pot). The Phalaenopsis are very easy to care for and mostly they send out flower shoots once or even twice a year. Many of them are in bloom right now:







I haven't been able to make the Cymbidium bloom ever since I bought it, a few years ago:


It is a pity because they're quite spectacular. I am probably failing at keeping it happy.

The Miltonia, however, does bloom every couple of years or so, just two flowers. Although it really doesn't look very happy at all. It is in bloom right now:
