There are many things that cause this, and unfortunately, your photo did not come through. I can take a few guesses, though.

They are sensitive to bright light, low humidity, temperatures nearing the lower end 50 degrees, and over/under-watering. On top of this, they require regular feeding.

Leaf drop can indicate that the humidity is too low to sustain growth. It can also tell you that the temperatures are too low to sustain growth. Sometimes they drop leaves when they are watered too much, or when they dry out completely for too long. This can also happen if it has gone more than a few weeks without foliar feeding with an orchid fertilizer. Light can also play a factor. Both direct sun, and full shade will cause leaf drop, so they need to be in bright , but filtered light.
