aerangis biloba flowers

Hello friends!
Hoped never to post there, but i think it's inevitable
I've acquired small aerangis biloba recently, already with the spike
The spike developed, but it seems that not everything is allright...
Is it just plant reaction for moving from greenhouse to my house, or some more system fault?
temps 20-24C, RH high, cause it's hanging just above the evaporator
Any suggestions?
Thank you!

I have a plant I just received also that the petals did this, I think its one of 2 or both depending on 2 things.
It could be from change of humidity, or cold exposure.
Mine I believe was both when it got shipped to me and it was during a cold dip and it came ground ups instead of regular mail usps so it took longer to get here and was exposed to cooler temps and cut off from some humidiy or got fluxuating temps in transit.

How was yours aquired ? Did this happen after receiving it? If after what is your temps and humidity levels day /night ?
Is it near a draft by a window?

I have 2 of these orchids, both being in bloom now. It could be a matter of a change in enviornment, or it might just be the blooms are starting their natural fade. The blooms on one ofmine lasted a couple weeks and started to show signs of fading. The other plant bloomed a bit later and is still looking good with just a bit of browing on the edge of the first flower to open. From what I can see of your plant, it looks good, so I wouldn't worry,

orchids4me, it's quite away from the window, the temps do change at night, so they are 24-26 C day, around 19-21 at night. humidity is relatively high, around 75%, but it's hanging close to evaporator, and sometimes is hit by the steam it produce.

I've changed the evaporator placement, we'll see what it give

Syndywindy, i was worried just because my flowers lasted just for 4 days when the signs of decay appeared.
