Hard Grey-Black Roots on Phal
Hi Everyone! I have a problem with one of my phals. I don't know what I was thinking, but I had accidentally potted my phal in to large of a pot size a while back ago. The roots weren't the best at the time when I received it as well, but I thought they were salvageable. I thought all was going well....but then I noticed the bottom leaves starting to yellow so upon further observation, I found a spot of black rot on the stem where one of the bottom leaves attaches to the stem area. I had gotten some insane idea and re-potted it in some epiweb and was watering it daily, kind of like if it were mounted, so that I wouldn't over water it again. I happened to post the epiweb idea with phals previously this last week and Ray pointed out it wasn't such a good idea and he is right, so I was just about to pot it back into some fresh moss mixture when I saw how bad the roots really are. The roots are kind of hard and grey-black. I am not sure what to do....can some one help me and my phal?
