Any chance for this kaki?

Dragon66(9)February 18, 2014

It's been potted about a month in orchid bark but started noticing the leaves very droopy and getting these spots. Is there a chance for this plant or is it doomed. Any ideas greatly welcome.

Sorry, no one responded.

Your plant does not look healthy. It appears a bit dehydrated. What type of light does it get and what temperatures? Where do you live? Zone 9?

Please post back with more info. Might be better to put the keki in a small pot with some moist sphagnum moss in a bright window.

I'm not sure what the blotches are.

Also it is a phalonopsis. Not a kaki. There is such a thing as a kiki. They are baby plants that form on some orchids. especially phals.

I think they meant 'keiki' as you can see in the photo, it's been cut off a spike.
