soft leaves on a phal
I've had this phal for a few months, adopted from someone who had it for 2 years. It's been pretty healthy, has grown a new top leaf in my care after I repotted it and is currently engaged in a new stalk, about three inches long so far. The leaves in the last week or so have turned very soft-- normally they're stiff and sit up, but suddenly are very pliable. Is it actually possible I'm underwatering and they're not turgid? Or have you seen this behaviour before? I'm hard pressed to pull out any of the bark and check the roots for rot to see if I've gone the other way overwatering, because of the stalk. Would it be too much shock to pull it out and cull some of the dead roots?
let me know!
