    Unhappy My phals under grow lights are loosing leaves...

    I put my tray of Phals under grow lights for the fall/winter season hoping to supplement some light, now they are loosing leaves. One has only one good leaf left, they just turned yellow and brown very quickly. What did I do wrong? ( don't have a way to show pics right now, sorry )

    Sounds like maybe a watering / root issues more than a light issue. have you taken a look at the orchid roots?

    cheers,

    Thank you, That seems to be the one thing forgot to check. Will let you know what I find.

    I have 2 Cyms that look like they are going to bloom for me, WOW I am so excited!!! I thought that I would have to wait forever for that. Will try to get some pics with my husbands camera & show you if they do.
    Thank you all for your help and support! I really appreciate all of it.
