Hello all and thank you for allowing me to join the forum. I'm needing to ask a question about my paphiopedilum "midnight" orchid. She is my very first orchid, and things seemed to be going well. Her color was good and her leaves were ferm. I was not expecting her to go into spike as she was young but when she did I truly was extatic. I watched her carefully and though she was growing very slowly I had read that was normal so did not worry. Last night I came home and it looked as though the spike just below the bud had been pinched and it was hanging low like a broken neck. I just don't know what may have happened and I am devastated. Can anyone give me some advice?
