Hi,
I received two Phalaenopsis Orchids about a month and a half ago when my mother passed away. There are three leaves on one and one leaf on the other that is starting to droop. I waited 14-24 days to water them. I just watered them 5 days ago, just a little bit. Do I need to replant or fertilize them? They are not in direct sunlight and are located in the northeast area of the house. What can I do to help them?

My orchid's leaves are turning a putrid yellow color.Is there anything I can do to stop this?

Yes, your orchid can bloom again. Start by trying to identify your orchid so you can learn its specific care needs. If you can't ID it, check this generic orchid care info.

I was given a potted orchid for Valentine's day. the flowers have now dropped off. How to I prepare it to bloom again or will it?

Check this post on Reading Your Orchid's Leaves. Common causes include sunburn, pests, disease, or watering problems, including getting cold water on Phal leaves.

My Phalaenopsis has black round spots on the leaves and we don't know why this is happening. We do not water it at night and it is in a pretty warm room.

To Krystal: Check basic care info for Phals. Common causes for losing flowers include too much or too little water, allowing the orchid to sit in water, dry air, or cold temps. 60F may be too cool for some Phals, so that is a good place to start.

To Chris: Blooms fade as part of the plant's natural life cycle, and 6 weeks is long time for flowers to last. If you think yours are fading prematurely, check info for Krystal above. To get your plant to bloom again, it will help to identify it so you can learn its specific care needs. If you can't ID it, check this generic orchid care info.

We bought a orchid about 3 days ago. But one of the flowers are scrunching together and all the others are not. Also, the unbloomed buds are turning light green and yellow. We have only watered it once since we got it. Also the buds were bright green and the flowers were spread out wide. Also my orchid is a Phal.
Also, the temperatures in my house are usually between 60 degrees and 75 degrees. Why is my orchid scrunching up flowers and changing the bud color?
Please help me. I am very worried. I love plants and really want to keep them alive and healthy.

I've had my orchid for about 6 weeks and the flowers have all turned brown & fallen off. The main stems are now turning brown. Is this normal? If not, what did I do wrong?
