    Exclamation Phal roots dead is there any thing to be done to save the plant

    Shall I just chuck my Phal away?
    The roots were all whiteish but firmwhen I repotted my Phal a month ago. I think the pot I used was too big and I over watered it because the medium was a lot more porous. I only decided to have a look at it because I couldn't see any new roots or leaves. As you can see there aren't any good roots but the leaves look strong.Name:  Orchid 1.JPG
