Back after a long brake, but now i have a new dilema Male
Default Back after a long brake, but now i have a new dilema

Hi all! i havent been on in a long while. some people might still remember me. its the same old help that cam as a newbie. i know have acquired some more chids!! i now have seven phals. sadly though, the first one i had many problems with has now died. i now have a few more problems though.

first, i bought this phal. Kung's green star (the one in flower)about a month ago. it had 7 blossoms and 21 buds two of the blossoms have black things on the part that has the polled sacks ( excuse my lack of orchid anatomy knowledge ) the fell off. but now two more blossom have the same spots on them and im wondering if there is any way to save them.

Not sure what that might be. The only thing which comes to mind is do you mist the flowers? It's not a good idea to mist the flowers and I'm just wondering if it's rotting inside the flower.

I've noticed the "pollen caps" (sorry I don't know the proper term) sometimes fall off. I don't know what causes it. I'm not sure if it's something to worry about if all else looks fine ... ?
I'm sure members with more knowledge than myself will chime in ...

Whiterabbit is right about pollon caps sometimes falling off. I was more concerned about the black arround the that area in the pics, I've never seen it happen though so I can't really say what it is.

i dont mist the flowers. ive heard of pollen caps falling off, but thats not what im concerned about. i agree with rosie in the fact that the black area is the part to be concerned about. the pic looks about what the two other flowers looked like when they got it( whatever it is) after a few days, the black spot are indented and then the flowers shrivel up and fall off like bud blast

***UPDATE*** the black spots on the first flower have gotten bigger and deeper indented. the one with the small black spot hasnt changed much. can anyone tell me how to put picks in a reply? I figured out how to put the pictures on. so here they are. i hope someone will be able to help me figure this out.
