    Default is this a burn? or more serious?

    Hi guys,
    You might remember my 'basket of phals' experiment. I have three noids potted in a basket. So far I've earned two spikes, but one of the phals has yet to put out anything but aerial roots. When I moved, the basket was put outside for a few days, and a few of the leaves were burned in the morning sun. I removed those leaves, but now one of the phals has a gaping hole in one of its leaves. I thought this might be a very concentrated burn, but now I'm wondering if that was an accurate diagnosis. Take a look. What do you think?

    Yep , it is from burn , during a move I had mine outside for a short time and got just like that .
    Once it is finished drying out will look like a spider web covering the hole . Will look like heck for awhile, in time the leaf will be shed naturally . Gin

    Yay for the basket of phals experiment! Looks like it is going pretty well--a few burns not withstanding.
