Orchids are gorgeous flowers as long as they are in bloom. After the flowers are gone you end up with a poor looking foliage and a lot of pampering, hoping that you will see those beautiful flowers again.
All my orchids brought new spikes over this winter and leaves as-well, but the buds are drying and falling off (except on one orchid of ten). Nothing has changed in their environment, except the season.
The diagnoses for bud blast can be just about everything; too much watering or not enough, too high temperature or too low, not enough light or anything else that you will never find out.
I believe, orchids are the most unpredictable flowers ever, when they are not in their native habitat.
The photos of these beautiful white-pink Phalaenopsis orchids with purple spots were taken at the garden center, were I often waste my money on these overly picky flowers.
