    Default Masd. Leaf...?

    Hi,

    I shipped this home to CO after finding it in SC while visiting my parents. It shipped with a paph from the same grower and I don't think suffered heat damage.

    This leaf has since fallen off- no others seem to be affected....should I be worried?

    Thanks!

    That did not happen during shipping. It must have happened before you shipped the plant. Otherwise, the entire plant would show signs of distress. I think you should not be worried since you do not see any other symptoms anywhere else. If these are new plants, did you take a look at the roots? Also, since they are new, spray with a fungicide just to be safe.


    Cheers,
    BD

    Yep...roots look great- will hit it with a fungicide and stop worrying.

    Thanks!

    My masdies do that to me too and seem not to have any problem. I do not know if it is caused by lack of humidity
    Good luck,
    Augusto
