    Default Phal Gigantea seedling

    I got this for free after an orchid society show in my hometown. One of its leaves was damaged and hanging by a thread. It soon fell off. All my other Phals are in leafgrowth or spike phase, yet this one remains dormant. Any ideas?
    This is in a 2 1/2 inch/7cm pot.

    It will probably be alright. The damage was probably physical. Keep treating it like your others and hopefully you will see new leaf growth soon.

    Cheers,

    It may need time to acclimate to new conditions if you got the plant recently. Also, Phal. gigantea does have a reputation for being a slower grower and being more finicky than say a typical Phal. hybrid.
