Orchid behavior help new parent
My mom bought me an orchid for my birthday, I've always wanted orchids. Used to spend hours researching them. Proper care of orchids seems to be eluding me though, I'm so used to succulents which can be neglected. Orchids seem finicky and mysterious. The flowers are dying, which I expected, but the flower stalk is a light brown / yellow color and wrinkling up. Is this normal? I think it's a Phalaenopsis if that matters.
