Orchid Languishing!

Bought a new phal a couple of weeks ago and already crown is dark brown in certain places. Additionally, the aerial roots which were once white and waxy are now barky and rough with green and black splotches. Please advise!

RE: Orchid Languishing!

A picture would be best. What do you mean by brown in 'certain places'? If the entire center of the plant is brown, it has crown rot. Allowing water to sit in the crown over night could cause the rot. I don't think I've ever noticed black splotches on aerial roots. Good luck with your phal.
