Disfigured light colored new leaf on phal
Default Disfigured light colored new leaf on phal

I have a new phal that spent more time than I'd like in less-than ideal conditions. Quarantine for new plants. Then extended quarantine after another new plant (not this one) was found to have mites. Quarantine does not have as steady a light or temperature or humidity as my normal growing location.

This plant grew a new leaf (in progress), but instead of being uniformly dark green, the base of the leaf is much lighter in color and not as firm/substantial. Not mushy or anything, but not a firm dark green leaf. This is not what I'm used to seeing. And the leaf is not flat. It is folded or wavy. I've attached photos.

Any thoughts on what would cause a leaf to grow this way?

Assuming I'm moving the plant to normal conditions (just did that) where I've never had any troubles, will this leaf recover?

Finally, if I lose the center leaf of the phal, am I in
trouble?

NOTE: I'm having trouble uploading photos. I think they are too big. Base of leaf is pale. Leaf is not flat. Like bibb lettuce. No part is pitted or anything, just the overall shape is bad. Will post pics later if I can.

Thanks,

Apparently some response to the cultural differences, but we're gonna need a photo, Jeff...

I categorize that as "no big deal". It will likely recover nicely once it is back where it was, receiving the same care it used to.

It is actually a new plant, therefore the quarantine.

But Iím glad to know it is no big deal. Never had a new leaf go weird like this. And never had a leaf go pale.

So thanks for the info. Iíll send photos of when it clears up or decides to get worse.

I have a feeling that, as long as the plant receives optimal care from now on, it will be just fine.
