    Default Accidentally dropped mature Phal, help !

    I had an accident with a mature phal, it was sitting on an unstable shelf and fell on the concrete, the beautiful new long leaves were shredded and damaged. Should I cut off the damaged leaves? Or should I just let them stay on the plant? Should I dust the plant with cinnamon? I want to know how to save it. Thanks

    Thanks, but the leaves are badly damaged. My only hope is that it might have another healthy leaf before winter sets in.

    If the leaves are badly damaged I would cut them off and treat the cut with cinnamon or fungicide.
