frozen or not?
Hello All! Happy New Year!
It is currently around 13 degrees in Boston! Very refreshing!
When I was walking home from work Thursday night, a neighbor had put in the trash a huge Phal NOID with a super thick spike that must have just finished booming. I felt bad for it so I took it in - it was compacted into moss (which always rots things in my house) so I unpotted it and found lots of stringy roots, white roots and a few green plump ones. I trimmed of the stringy ones and let it air out overnight. I sprayed it with water yesterday before I went to work and have been keeping it on a low radiator next to a South facing window. the radiator is warm, but the air around it is probably 64ish (big old windows = major heat loss! but that is a different topic)
Now the question - I repotted it in large loose medium in a plastic pot and set it in a humidity tray...the leaves which are a good 6-8" long each are 1) really dark green and 2)rather than holding themselves up straight are folded over and almost creased and limp...they are so sad to look at! This morning I noticed too that the leaves are wrinkled, so it seems they aren't getting any water...
Do you think this was completely frozen and is dead???
What else can I do for the poor thing?
