Hi,
I have a pink phalaenopsis orchid that's putting out buds on a new branch. Some of the buds are getting bigger and are still green but some turned pink and shriveled up or fell off. Why are my unborn flowers dying?

You need a humidity tray. You can read about them on this page: http://www.imagine123.com/orchidtips/care.html

Also, make sure your room is not going below 55-60 degrees F per night.
