    Unhappy Drooping and spotting new Phal

    Hi there! I searched through the FAQs and got some ideas, but didn't see exactly what I was looking for.

    I just got a beautiful new phal. It's been home for about 4 days - and it's gotten horribly ill. It's leaves and flowers are drooping and rubbery and the flowers look like they're drying out? They have yellow and brown (dead) spots. )-: Help!

    Is it just the new conditions? It has been unusually hot here, and it's going to get above 100 this weekend. The bottom of the soil is somewhat moist. I've overwatered other orchids, lost buds and didn't want to make the same mistake.

    WhaddooIdoo?

    Thanks so much!

    Ahh. I just looked again, and there are black or dark patches on the leaves - the leaves in those patches are thin and a little wrinkly but they don't look dry. I'm traumatized!

    Please post a picture if you can, it will really help us. Also, unpot the plant and check the roots. If a plant has root rot it will cause the die back of flowers and leave..
