    I've also received a phal looking like this...stressed out, and looking like it hates its pot so much it's trying to walk out of there! However it was carrying a huge branching spike, and the leaves were looking a bit shrivelled, so I left it in its original pot but placed it in a big fishing bowl. I misted it regurarly until it went out of bloom. It really needed a lot more water than my other blooming phals!
    Later I cut back the spike and repotted in s/h in a big clay pot, where it sits now, looking very green and very happy, growing a big plump spike again.
    My verdict is this: it looks *very* stressed. It will need extra moisture to grow those spikes to bloom, however it will also need energy from the leaves. How about topping up the pot with some new medium? An some extra light would be good...
