Default Black spots and yellow leaves

Hi everyone, I'm wondering if anyone can help me. The bottom leaf of one of my phals is dying, but its got ugly black spots and some random coloring on it. I noticed theres also a black spot on a healthy leaf. I'm just worried because this is my first phal to respike. Any advice? I posted 2 pictures in my gallery but i'm not sure how to put them in the thread.

You're leaf is just dying off - spikes and roots can sometimes weaken the leaves.
Also the phal looks dry - try upping the watering.

Congrats on the spike and Welcome to the Forum

Since this is the oldest leaf and below the spike, I think it's just normal aging and nothing to worry about. If it's a new leaf yellowing, then you should worry!

I agree - looks like just normal dying. The rest of the plant looks pretty healthy to me.
