I meant the air itself and water that flows over them is here source of nutrients.

Choclatebetta: You are correct that you should water your orchid "when it tells you to" (and not more often) If you leave the flower stem on the plant it will often either produce more buds, or little plantlets. You should leave the stem on the plant for as long as it takes, but if it dries out and turns brown, you should remove it. Sometimes I have old flower spikes on my orchids for months and months, and they will throw new buds. I have one right now with two little plantlets growing from a very old flower spike. Good luck - I hope you get new growth from your spike!

It might take a while, but if it is healthy it will throw another spike. What color were the flowers?

You can use an all purpose fertilizer or you can use orchid fertilizer. There are types to help promote flowering also.
