Default Phal stopped opening flowers

Hi everyone

I got myself in a pickle, I have had Phals for years, they do well in my house. However, about 2 weeks ago i totally forgot to water them, i soak 1x week and remembered 2 days later. All are spiking or in bloom. However, 1 with 2 spikes was just opening its flowers in the week i fortgot to water. All buds are mature, standing away from the stem. Now, 2 weeks later, the buds are not blasting, but defenitly not opening either. I rehydrated the phal inmediately upon remembering i forgot to water.
The plant looks great, roots look great and the rest of the phals are doing fine. Is there anything I can or should do? I have never run into this before.

It could also be due to lower temperatures.

Sometimes they start opening again after a good watering. Other times buds may stay on the stems for a long time before dropping off unopened. You can hope.
May the bridges I've burned light my way.

Thanks ES,, I’ll keep hoping. With 14 buds I would really like it to keep going!
