I'd say that if lead or copper were high enough to significantly add to the TDS, the water would be classed as toxic waste... At least in the US (and I think the EU is even more strict) the limit...

It's not true of Phals... as long as the spike is green, I leave it since the plant can "recycle" the tissue and energy. Cutting the Phal spike is purely an aesthetic decision... if you don't like...

I'd go ahead and repot. The leaf looks like it's just an old one (they don't last forever) but if the medium is questionable, good idea to repot. Phals are growing and rooting all the time, so the...

Precisely... That is the contribution of the Lc (C.) Mari's Song - It is peloric, and imparts that pattern to its progeny very strongly.

I think that's too cool for the Bulb. rothschildianum... it can tolerate cold, but needs warmer days at least. If one has to choose cold or warm, I think it would do better warm/intermediate.
