    Unhappy Floppy and wrinkling leaves on phal orchid.

    I had a problem with my Phal, there are yellow and black spots on its leaves. So I search for a solution for it then I saw this DIY fungicide on youtube. So I follow all the steps, comply all the ingredients needed then I applied it in all my orchids. Then I move it in a tree trunk after, then all of the sudden the leaves of my phal get floppy, then it starts to have this wrinkle leaves. Then the spots are almost taking place all over the mother phal. (Because it has 2 new growth, which is Im afraid it will get a floppy leaves too.

    what should I do with my phal's leaves?

    Hi-

    A picture will help us tell you what to do.

    Remember that the Phal leaves will never recover from any state they attain. Wounds don't go away. They may heal over but not become invisible. Marks of any sort will remain until the Phal sheds the leaf. If it is green, floppy or not, it still photosynthesizes and does what it is supposed to do. We look for new growth to be clear of the issues.

    I would agree with Harvey, pictures are really the only way we can determine the problem correctly! How much do you water?

    Just a quick tip after Jack and Harvey's comments. When you try a new product or recipe, don't use it for all of your plants immediately. Try it on one or two first.
