What Causes Wrinkled Orchid Leaves?

Question of the Week:

“Hi Ryan,

wrinkled leafI have a dozen or so orchids on my windowsill in a north window. So far they have been doing quite well and blooming well also but now I have at least 3 that have leaves that are getting wrinkled or puckered. They all are watered the same, and I let the water drain through so they don’t sit in water. I water them once a week or week and 1/2. What is causing this? Thanks for any help.”
