    Default What is wrong with this Phal?

    I just noticed this today when watering. I repotted it recently and felt like I was abusing it because the large leaves were awkward to manipulate. Please let me know your diagnosis and recomended treatment. It lives outside 24/7 and gets about 1500fc of light. Only about 1 hour of morning sun.

    I did mist it with water but it gets very little sun in it's current location. There are other plants close by that also got misted but no problems with them.

    I wonder if this might be my problem? I recently repotted and went from moss to alifor and coir. The alifor drains much faster and I was witholding water as per some reccomendations. Perhaps the reduction of moisture and the current high heat was the culprit. Isn't sunburn typically black or brown spots?
