Crown Rot

Today sucked.  I came home from being out of town for the weekend to find that several of my plants had lost blooms (which is expected for some) and one of my favorites (P. Orchiee Papillon) has crown rot.  It was quite a shock since I'm sooo careful with my watering and so forth.  

So, I spent most of this evening trimming away the black tissues and hopefully it won't be fatal.  I'll post updates soon. 


  1. I'm so sorry to hear this. I wish you luck in saving the plant - it really is a gorgeous Phal.

  2. Thank you. I really hope that this one can be saved. She is one of my favorites.
