Question Phrag Kovachii drooping

Hey guys,



I have a Kovachii for 2 months still in original media of rock wool. I noticed the last couple of days that its leaves (it has about 5-6 leaves) starting to droop/limping sideways especially its most upper leaves like if the base cant hold the leaf. I keep it in a cool, bright place place, sitting in a little water and flush every week. fert monthly and add kelp too. I did water it last time with epsom salt instead of fert.

I am waiting on lava rocks to go S/H as well.

NOTE: my other phrags are doing ok... its just the Kovachii

as always ...THANK for all your advice and comments

Hi Ray, so I unpotted the plant and it did have some black mushy roots, it had moss growing on top and looked dead and super brown attached to the rockwool too... I removed all that and cutaway the bad roots hopefully that was the problem.

The others are doing great (i unpotted them and made sure those were ok)

I got the Kovachii and schomburg from a private seller so those came in rockwool, the others (P. besseae amazonas,P. Perufloras Angel,super rubies and the P.Yelva Myhre) I got through ecuagenera and came in sphag - those are some good roots and fuller plants, and doing great.

Wish me luck ill be converting them all to S/H I got my pots ready with the side holes
