Your phal looks a bit dehydrated but with a lil bit more of humidity and more water, it will probably recover in no time. Since the air is too dry, try making a humidity tray for your plant and maybe try misting it but make sure water dont sit in the crown for too long or you might get crown rot. Good luck and plz keep us posted on how your phal is doing.
The limp leaves and wilting flowers make it seem dehyrdrated.
I would soak this guys for an hour, and then set in nice bight indirect light with a humidity tray. When I first started growing phals, I didnt have the correct amount of Humidity, so many of the roots outside of the medium dried. A tray helps a lot. I used tray the first two years I grw without my sunroom.
The buds drying off is called bud blasting. This happens when there is a drastic change in enviroment. Maybe the growing conditions before were humid, and now it is dry. This drastric change in so little time often causes stress on the plant, causing the buds to dry and drop without blooming
