    And its 6 months on and they are the same, relatively healthy but lacklustre overall. I did speak to someone on this forum who told me, that it could just be that it is a very broad leaved variety that just simply grows that way. My other rescues have done better so I havent given up hope but as of yet, no blooms, nothing...best of luck!

    I have a similar issue with one drooping phal... I received it as a gift, droopy leaves but healthy roots. However mine has new root growth and a new leaf coming in. Upon repotting (mealybug issue, now resolved as far as I can tell), I clipped out the dead roots and gave it a good scrub. No change in leaf droopiness. Perhaps I'll give KelpMax a go.
