Orchid leaves turning yellow

by Cathy Kurpil

It seems that all of the sudden all my orchids are having their leaves turn yellow. If it was just one plant I wouldn't be so concerned but it is all of them! Any ideas as to why this might be happening. They are outdoor plants, I live in Fl. Any tips for caring for my orchid whose leaves are turning yellow? Thanks!

    I believe it is normal this time of year. Don't worry, let them fall off on their own.

    What type of orchids do you have? If it is just the bottom leaves that are turning yellow, that may not be a particular cause for concern, but if more than that are, it could well be. A photo would help.
