Phalaenopsis Orchids

Moth Ochid


maasannejulie added on March 1, 2017 | Answered

My moth orchid has been blossoming for about two weeks. The leaves seem to look wilted. They are not as upright as they were before. Is this normal? They are nice and green. I only water with three ice cubes once a week. I recently gave the plant a little 15-35-15 fertilizer. Do you have any suggestions?
