    Hi guys! I'm new in this forum. Last September i received a pink orchid Palaenopsis. Everything was fine for about 3 months. After that, when started winter, her flowers started fall down and her branches from green became brown and very dry. I normally water it every 12 days, wetting her soil and roots. The rest of the plant seems good.
    Can you suggest me some advice to treat my plant, and if will necessary cut a little bit the branches?
    I'm grateful to you for every single help!!
    Bye Bye

    Hi. You may want to start here: AOS culture sheet It gives the basic on phalaenopsis care. It is not surprising your flowers started to fall. Flowers dying are a normal part of the growth process. Now you can focus on growing new leaves and root so your plant has enough energy to bloom next year.

    If you post images of your plant we may be able to see if it is something other than a normal progression.
