Orchid Help

My orchid was doing really well.

That extension off the main stalk was growing well and it seemed to be thriving.

Then one morning I woke up to this leaf.

Should I be concerned? A quick Google search says that yellowing of old leaves is normal, but I'm really nervous.
Does anyone have experience with orchids?


  1. I have very minimal experience with orchids..have only one. They don't like a lot of water I read..just once a week and an orchid fertilizer as per directions. However, if you go to Jodi De Long's blog, I am sure you will find further info.

  2. I've personally worked with hundreds of orchids and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to when leaf yellowing occurs. It seems to happen over night and without any cause. I would just cut the leaf off and move on.
