Did I mess up?

7 years ago

I got a plant in the mail the other day that had two buds that were about to open. It had a bunch of aerial roots that were sticking out of the pot so I trimmed off the ones that I was sure were dead. They were shriveled and dried and did not have any green in them when I cut them. The buds are now wilting and I think I'm going to lose them. I'm kicking myself now for messing with the plant while it was in flower. Could I have caused this with my trimming of the roots even though they seemed quite dead?
