|Hello, I bought this orchid last month, I have placed that in a semi shadow place and water it once a week, but the flowers have all fallen. Can you please help me? Do I do something wrong?

|It is a Phalaenopsis orchid. It likes a nice bright spot with absolutely NO DIRECT SUN. But you can't grow it in a darkened cave either.
Should never go too dry, water well so that the water really pours out of the drainage holes. Flowers typically last about a month. But if it doesn't get enough water, it will shorten the life of the flowers.
Likes a temperature range of between 65-85 degrees F.
Look through our "Orchid Forums" on this site for more information. There we have several threads dealing with growing Phalaenopsis. They would be very helpful to you.
There is also a great sticky there entitled "Supermarket Orchids-Phalaenopsis"! That would be well worth reading it.
