In monogamy, males and females work together to build a cup-like nest of plant material such as dried flowers, lichen, feathers, grass and/or small roots. Everything that is built is connected to the website. 1 to 4 eggs are laid inside and fertilize the male or female for about 15 days. Once hatched, the parents feed the chicks for 15 days after hatching.

Due to this species’ large breeding range and relatively stable population, the Orange-bellied flowerpecker is not thought to be under any current threat.
