Thanks for your comments, people! :G

Bootneck2, dry / dead leaf tips are usually caused by low humidity and/or underwatering.

But this can also be a sign of root rot (from overwatering & decaying / soggy potting medium), hard water, or over-fertilising. It depends on the kind of orchid too; some species seem to develop dry / dead leaf tips more than others.
