Orchid Cymbidium Care

Anonymous added on April 23, 2014 | Answered

I have had this orchid cymbidium since Valentine's Day. I have followed all the directions to care for it, but I am worried I have messed something up. There were many blooms on her for about a month, then they started wilting and falling off. Then a few of the leaves began to die, and the stems are dried up. After reading many different sites, I see conflicting information on what I should do....I do not want to cause further damage.

It sounds like your orchids may need more humidity. Since the blooms have faded, you can remove them and the stems along with any other dead growth. You should also be seeing some new growth at some point.
