    Default Phalaenopsis NOID - will probably be the last time i see blooms on this one

    Well this Phal is very sick only having 3 roots and no signs of recovery in the leaves i dont think it will be long until i have to say goodbye. Today it has opened one bloom which i have captured now incase it drops it before its fully opened.

    This Phal has hung on through thick and thin it has 2 flower spikes and one that i cant decide whether its going to be a spike or keiki yet. If anyone knows of it id i would be most grateful.



    This is what state the plant is in and still hanging on for dear life

    Looks like it has had some root damage. Better cut those spikes and let that plant put its energy into leaves and roots, or be ready to say goodbye.

    cheers,

    Hi Bruce,
    This was one of the first Phals i got every Phal i bought from that supplier has had major problems. They had repacked a lot of dead/woody roots into the media a few had bugs and all had rotting roots. Needless to say 6 months on i know a lot better now what im looking for when it comes to orchids and will hopefully never make that same mistake again.
