    The tray I'm using was originally supposed to be one of those clear plastic overflow trays that you can line up 3 plants on. It's only about 2/3" deep, so I'm not sure if it's really big enough to help. It's got two 4" pots and a 6" pot on it and is about 6-7" wide... probably not much difference there.

    And, Hmmmm about the dehydrated phal note... I'm betting that's the issue with mine (since I repotted it) ... either that or its gasping after being removed from it's old, moldy, soggy bark mix. (I didn't do it!) ... It's definitely droopy and the leaves, though lighter green than their original dark dark green... seem slightly less plump. Hydration is key!!! *drinks water*

    Hooray for hydration! Mine started wilting right after a repotting too. I think I didn't do it quite right to begin with, and then just about everything that could possibly dehydrate the plant happened, from being too hot and dry to being too close to the AC to not getting enough water to begin with. Poor phal. It seems to be coming back nicely though, with two new aerial roots and about an inch of healthy-looking leaf appearing in the last month.
