    Default Phal Bellina First fatality :-(

    Since I went live with my cultivation cabinet a few months ago, all the plants I put in there (from Catts to Masdevallia hybrids, Phals to Angraceums etc, just for sake of experimenting!) seem to have thrived! To my surprise, actually. But now my precious little Phal bellina has decided to hand in the towel in protest of its new habitat :-(. It was sudden, no time for a rescue mission. It MIGHT have been an aggressive earlier mealy bug treatment that did it, can't be sure, but now I have a few square centimeters available in the cabinet...! What onearth should I do with them?! ;-):-D

    Hi Xara,

    Dont give up on it yet if there any green left (even with no roots) in the plant you could revive it and it could come back. you could spray her with some fungicide and keep her in a spag and then keep her humid and moist and she could revive
