    Actually I am still waiting for spaghnum moss however I put the plant into the root growth hormone,then surround it with gauze ( I don't know If it is the correct term but It is made from spaghnum moss as well so I surrounded with it until the moss arrives,in a week I hope) I have those mini greenhouses that is called Socker greenhouses (from a major Swedish shop) I don't know If It would be useful or not so please guide me )
    Thank you

    Update - I am not sure for how long that a plant can resist before putting new roots however the phal is still the same;no improvement,not worse eighter according to my mom (as I am out out of the country,she takes care of my two phals there) I just wish that in the end,the end will be good.

    If the roots appear to be rotting it is over water and if dry then underwater. It could be yur nurturing it too much depending on how much you shock it with hormones. Also, the color of the leaves are awful dark, r u sure its getting enough light?

    Another thing that may harm it is if u constantly un-pot then re-pot just to check the roots it will not be able to adapt to its new environment. A clear pot should allow visibility without the need to pull it out so much and move it around all the time.

    There are several methods that people have developed. I like to take the plant and wrap the root (or root area) with some sphagnum moss, preferably the New Zealand variety that is very large fibered. This moss should be moist but not wet. Then place this in a clear bag, blow air into it (for carbon dioxide) and seal it with a twist tie. Give only indirect light and keep around 70 degrees F. The moss has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties and will promote root growth. Best of luck with it and keep us informed.
