I have two Phalaenopsis orchids and I got them quite recently. To get to the chase, I'll just say what my 'problem' is.
With the Flowers
1.Okay, so some of my flowers are wrinkling on their own along the stem, while other flowers remain perfectly fine. For some reason, the flowers in the middle are the ones that are wrinkling, and the ones that are closer to the main stem are perfectly fine. Does anyone know why this is happening? If it helps, I pollinated one orchid flower from each plant, (I know that they're supposed to wrinkle so it's fine,) is this why they're doing this? or is it from lack of light? (see below)
2. Some of the new buds that where on the plant are dieing. I think I know why, but I just wanted to check up to see if I was correct. It's either because a lack of light, or because I just got them and they're trying to adjust. Is this why it's happening, or is there another possibility that's to be pointed out?
