    Default What's up with these leaves?

    Bought this mini-phal about two months ago. Had wavy leaves so I repotted, cut off dead roots and it's not looking much better. Suggestions?
    Thanks, Michele

    Looks like dehydration. You have done the right thing in repotting it. It will perk up soon when new roots are formed.

    Be careful of how much and often you water it. If the roots are damaged, you may need to pay extra attention to make sure they do not stay wet too long nor do they dry completely out.
