    Default Phal Infection

    Hi all,

    I inherited a phal that has some kind of infection. Is she worth saving? Iíve sprayed her down with hydrogen peroxide and applied cinnamon but is there anything else I can do?

    I donít have a picture of the roots but when I repotted her the other day, the roots looked healthy with no signs of rot.

    Thanks!!

    Don't know why this one got missed jedigurl. If it were mine I would get rid of it but others may have a different opinion.

    In my opinion, that is classic sunburn symptoms.

    In all likelihood, the damage is done, it will lose that leaf, and is otherwise fine.

    First off welcome from Florida!

    I would agree with Ray just sunburn, keep it out of direct sunlight.

    Thanks all! All the leaves turned yellow and fell off, so I think there was something else ailing her. Onto the next one!
