    Default Need advice with my Phalaenopsis Orchid PLEASSSE!!!

    I bought these two orchids... And I need help... Some of the flowers just die. Not sure what is going on.

    My questions:

    1. why are the flowers dying?

    2. Would a humidity tray help?

    3. I use distilled water to water the orchids and never let them sit in it for more than 5 minutes.

    Thoughts what I am doing wrong...
    Thanks in advanced tim

    Welcome to the forum!

    If you bought these phals in bloom, they might be at the end of the bloom, might not be caused by your wrong doing. On humidity, where do you live? I live in Houston, so I don't use tray to increase humidity. And I water my orchids with tap water.

    A picture would help, often others have had the same problems. Maybe it's just done flowering...how are the leaves and roots looking?
