Phalaenopsis has a rich variety of flower colors, a long-lasting flowering period, a unique flower type, and high ornamental value. It is considered the most popular and commercially valuable orchid in the market. The axillary buds at the base of each leaf of Phalaenopsis orchid can form pedicels, but most of the axillary buds are in a dormant state during the flowering period. Studying the germination law of latent axillary buds can help improving the proportion of multiple flower stalks in Phalaenopsis, and has good application prospects. The main environmental factors (temperature, plant hormones, light environment, nutrient accumulation, etc) affecting the germination of Phalaenopsis bud and the regulatory methods to promote flower bud germination will be reviewed, in order to provide a reference for the application of regulating more flower bud germination in Phalaenopsis industry in the future.

Key words: Phalaenopsis, spike, regulatory method
