    Default Paph Primunilum-flower dropped

    I was really looking forward to my 1st Paph orchid to bloom. It was growing nicely but woke up this morn to find the flower had dropped =( Is this normal with Paph orchids or should I be worried?

    I will upload the pic of this Paph once I figure out how to do this.

    Bud drop is common with all plants. Environmental disturbance is the most common cause. Drafts, artificial heat, temp change in general, etc. It can all effect orchids for sure. Did you move the plant while in bud?

    I presume you mean Paph primulinum, not Primunilum. Buds drop sometimes, a cold breeze, it got bumped, the plant got dry, whatever. I wouldn't worry about it unless it keeps happening or there is some other visible problem with the spike. At least with Paph primulinum you can normally expect a new bud within a few weeks.

    Thanks all! Didn't realize I've mislabeled it. And yes, I did move it once when it was budding. Whew, I won't worry too much about it then, for now. Thanks!
