    Default Yellowing bottom leaves after hanging mini phal

    I've had this mini phal for several years and not really done much with it. As part of a general renewal of effort on a number of plants, I decided to hang several of my smaller guys, they look great and I think it will help do away with my previous troubles with root rot.

    I've had this hung up for almost a month and this ones bottom two leaves are starting to get yellow (just over the past week or so)
    The roots are in great shape, I give it a good soak once a week when the moss gets totally dry, and mist regularly between watering.
    It's about 4 feet from a window which gets bright sun through a tree outside for a couple hours in the morning and reflected light the rest of the day.

    Does this seem like just stress from the move? Or could it be getting too much light?

    I think this phal looks healthy. If it was too much light all the leaves would be yellowing or burned, the other leaves look very healthy. It also looks as if there are 5 healthy leaves besides these 2 that are yellowing, looks to me like this plant is done with those smaller leaves and is just gonna drop them. Its not unusual for a phal to drop 2 leaves at once.

    That's what I was hoping, good to get a second opinion though. Thank you!
