I never remove roots unless they fall off in my hand. I can't really tell what's dead most of the time. If they are slimy and black I know they're dead.

This kind of Phal is a warm, humid grower. It often drops buds when moved from a warm, humid environment to a cooler, dryer one. It also drops buds when the ambient humidity is too low.

I seem to recall most of these don't want hot temperatures, and don't want direct sun. And they don't like to dry out, ever.
