phalenopsis fertilizing

When buds appear on my phalenopsis orchid am I supposed to keep fertilizing until the flowers bloom or do I stop fertilzing as soon as I see buds?

This conversations page is as dead as the dodo. You should repost over on the orchids discussions page or go over there and read numerous past Phalaenopsis threads.
For what it is worth, in my mixed orchid collection there are orchids in all stages of growth and flowering. I fertilize them all regardless of their growth stage.
Fine tuning for Phalaenopsis might need a different answer.
