I have an orchid book that lists a few reasons for bud drop - 1) air pollution, make sure orchid is not near any ripe fruit or plant that produces ethylene or sulfur dioxide (pilot lights), and more likely reason 2) sudden fluctuations in temperature, reduced humidity or any change in environment. It is getting colder and darker out, if you are turning your heater on you are reducing the humidity, changing the air flow, and there is less light. Try a humidity tray and more light (small lamp 18" directly above plant)
