Is my orchid over or under watered?

It can be tricky to tell if your orchid is overwatered or underwatered. First, check the leaves: if they are drooping and wrinkly, then there’s a problem. Check the roots inside your orchid’s pot: if they’re soft, mushy, brown/black and wet, then overwatering is the issue. If they’re dry, silvery and wrinkly, then underwatering is the problem.
