It's normal for the flowers to drop off when they get old, but if your plant is prematurely dropping the blossoms, it is experiencing stress of some sort. The most common reasons for bud drop are (in order of 'likely cause') are: Cold drafts, location is too hot or too cold, over or under watering, or extremely low light levels. Do a little detective work and I'm sure you'll identify the cause. Best wishes with your orchid.
