    Default Paph delenatii-yellow brownish leaf

    Hi Guys,

    I am a bit worried about my delenatii Paph. This is my first try with a delenatii and a few days ago I noticed the bottm leaf yellowing and turning brown as you can see in the pictures. Is this normal as in Phals or should I be worried. The top leaf just finished growing a month ago(is the top one the sheath?) and I repotted it about 3 weeks ago and there was no serious rot issues. just the normal few small rotted roots.

    I would appreciate your thoughts on this one.

    thanks!

    Fadi

    No worries. It looks like normal die off. I would not be concerned. The rest of the plant seems fine.

    Cheers,

    I have had this exact same thing happen on one of the lowest leaves of my delenatii-and mine didn't have as many other leaves as yours does. Mine is fine, and I bet yours is too, since it is just a low, old leaf. Good luck with yours. Meg
