Default Phals with dropy leaves, still throwing spikes.

I have this problem with probably 10 of my phals. The leaves droop over the sides of the pots but the plant still flowers and grows new roots.

Does anyone know what cause this? How can I fix this?

thanks for any help!

Old leaves. Needs a little more light. Water a little more. Feed weakly/weekly. Lots of subtle reasons. Usually a little more light and water will do it. But not always with leaves that are already hanging. This was in sad shape when I got it. All the leaves were drooping badly and the lower were wrinkled. But the new leaves are once again standing upright like they should be. Don't worry about it.

If your phal leaves are floppy, they will never recover and remain in their floppy state. It usually points to irregular watering.
For the new leaves to be firm, you need to make sure they get sufficient water whenever they need it.

Also, do check the roots. Are the roots healthy?
