I got one from a friend and am kinda worry it would make it or I may already kill it. So it has 4 leaves and 1 small new leaf growing (intentionally). I repotted it because of the root rot problem and had to cut away almost the roots. It has still 4 roots in the media which are dark green when wet and 2 healthy aerial roots. I potted it in bark chips mix with seramis and a little sphagnum moss. The plant is placed near a south window where it is bright and warm without direct sunshine. What do you think? Should I be worry and do something else or just be patient and look how it goes?
Hi Troy! I suggest you wait for it and be patient, just like what Danni is always saying after a major orchid surgery, it will bounce back but will not take overnight, as long as you give proper nutrients and care, I’m sure you will have a healthy orchid in no time… Well, good luck and hope all your babies are in great shape. God bless!
Thanks so much Lhyne! That’s exactly what I needed. I am not usually impatient but with this plant… can’t help worrying. Anyway I will be just patient and wait to see how it goes.
It’s always worth it to wait patiently. The plant is bouncing back alright. I hope to see some blooms this year.
Congratulations!!! Well done!!! Hope to see its bloom here in orchid nature… More power to your babies… God bless!
Great Phal Troy – leaves look nice and a new root coming……patience and the proper care paid off – congrates. Hope once its totally recovered and strong it will bloom for you – I didn’t know this Phal but I googled it and its such a nice flower!! It’s on my “want-list” now lol – keep us posted how it goes and I hope one day you send us a picture with a wonderfull bloom.
Keep up the good work!
Still no sign of a spike…
It will bloom, I have faith in your ability to care for your phal and I have faith in your phal to pay back your tender loving care…
Well the orchid is growing roots, 5 new roots in total. I think it would produce a flower spike in the time the one new leaf finishes developing. But perhaps it would bloom next spring or summer.
