    Default Can this phal be saved?

    In the last week, this phal has lost its leaves to possibly crown rot. I've used physan on the black area in the middle and will soon be cutting off the spikes as they are obviously on their way out. Just at first glance, the roots seem to be healthy enough, but I'm not sure if it will be able to bounce back, i.e. grow new leaves, etc. once it's repotted. Is there something else I could try or do to save it?

    It would have to grow a basal keiki to survive. With the good roots, there is a chance for one. I would remove the spikes to direct all the energy to a basal keiki.

    I concur with Harvey avoid too much water from my experience usually the new keiki will emerge at least more than 2 months all depend on the environment , nutrient and infection free.
