Guess what?! the phal with no root is sprouting a new leaf!!! and it still has no roots - only little stubs which i cannot tell if they are growing because the tips are not green or red or look anything baby new - and the lower leaves are still creased and yellow! so strange. maybe this is a strange kind of species. there is a tag but i cannot figure out the handwriting. it looks like a species phal. yellow with i think red lines, not sure the last time it bloomed was last summer.
strange, right? i hope it knows what it is doing. i am still keeping it in the bag. i just try to keep it upright with a prop with its rootless stem buried in diatomite, in an s/h setup.
any suggestions welcome.
