I have a lovely phalanopsis orchid, which is blooming for the 3rd time since I dragged it home from a vacation. This year it put out two strong stems resulting in 13 buds. 10 have opened beautifully, 2 blighted and dropped off at lentil size, and one bud remains. But suddenly, overnight, most of the blooms have "wilted." They are saggy and sad looking. Nothing has changed in the location; still a protected south window, still surrounded by other green growing things, but they are definitely in trouble. Can anyone suggest a remedy? Thanks!

miznye - I think you need to post this on the orchid forum. We're just laughing over here...

I'll talk to Bob (I know him personally) and he might have a solution by the next 'episode'... but it will probably be silly.
