Orchid leaves

Although my Phalaenopsis is completely in bloom, I've noticed that the leaves (very green) are folded. Is this normal? Or what would be the cause?

I'm not sure what you mean by folded. If you upload a picture of the leaves, I might be able to tell you what the problem is.

If an orchid dries out, the leaves will sometimes take on a wrinkled appearance. Once this happens, that leaf will never be smooth again--even if you never let it dry out again.
