    Default Moth Orchid Leaves Trouble

    I have only had this orchid for a week, and the leaves are starting to change colour which troubles me. Originally nicely green, they are now turning soft yellow with a reddish tint in the middle of the leaves. One has now developed a black spot. Also, the leaves appear to be lifting up, one is pretty much vertical now. The flowers appear to be fine with 2 buds blooming in the last few days. Can you please help me out?
