Isle Of Skye, United Kingdom
Indoor orchid - I hope somebody can help me. I've no experience with orchids whatsoever but was given a phalaenopsis 3 days ago as a gift. Already it looks as though it is starting to wilt and a bud fell off.
I only just discovered that they are not to watered frequently and doing so can kill it. (I have been watering it for the past two days with orchid food thinking I was helping!)
It was water-logged so I emptied the water from it's pot and have left the plant-pot in the sink to drain off excess water.
Is there any other way I can help it? Do you think over-watering is the reason it's looking a bit miserable?
Thank you for any help you can offer.
