    Default Phal crown broken off - still hope for my plant?

    Hi,
    I accidentally broke the crown off my healthy Phalaenopsis noid when repotting it. Had to shed few tears...! It has very good green roots, lots of them, and healthy leaves. I hope it produces a keiki or a new growth from the stem. How likely is that?

    Thanks!
    Pauliina

    Hi Pauliina, it will likely be okay if it still has leaves and roots.

    Cheers,
