thanks wendylou, that explains a lot with my friends orchid, she has it on a sunny windowsill without any protection from the sun.
In her defence she was given the plant as a gift and it's flowering really well, she waters it every Sunday without fail so the only thing I've discovered thanks to this post is that it needs to be on a different windowsill.
I have been told that they like the eastern sun so my own orchid has been moved to see the rising sun, it seems that the flowers are starting to burst open, it wasn't even close to flowering, it was in a sort of limbo when it was sitting on the south west facing window. I don't water mine till it's totally dried out. How often do you water yours?
Thanks for your help, I'm going to suggest a voile to her.
