What to do with drooping leaves?
Help! The leaves of my orchids in pots are hanging limp. Do not panic! This is usually because your orchid has been overwatered. It is better to water too little than too much. Look at the roots first. If these are beautifully green, your orchid has enough water. Don't water anymore. If you see that the roots are slightly graying, this means that your orchid is too dry. It is best to immerse the orchid with plastic pot and all in a bucket or sink filled with water. In winter you can suffice with once every ten days. Let the orchid stand for about fifteen minutes. The roots are now sucking full of water. Let the plant drain well. Now the orchid can go back into the pot. This way your orchid will look beautiful again and you will not have to order a new one online.
