    So sorry to hear that. This could also be bacterial in nature. I'd drench it with hydrogen peroxide.

    When you say mushy do you mean the leaves, roots, or both. I would be careful to over apply to much hormone or antibacterials until you know what to treat. I had a phal once that I rescued that had a huge case of crown and root rot as well as an infection that caused "burning" To the edges of the blooms and leaves. I dried it out completely until the leaves started to almost shrivel and the roots turned white. That way I knew it would be eager to absorb the next step. Then I soaked the roots in water and hormones for about 10mins before repotting. then I just left it alone, watering normally as I would all my others. It is now recovering beautifully with a new baby leaf poking up from the crown. Sometimes with orchids less is more. This is the first orchid I had ever needed antibacterial and hormone treatments for.

    BTW thanks Kim I really appreciate your valuable experience I wish it will reward you very beautiful flowers another few months time, actually I'm referring to the infected leaves, thanks again for the description.
