A general rule of thumb is not to re-pot when the plant is in bloom--- or about to bloom.

Hi GydaMarie, I'm glad you think my purple spotted phal looks ok. I'll try and order some worm tea. I didn't know you could use it as an insecticide.I'm always up for using organic things.

Hi GydaMarie, The one that was doing the wilting was the one I just repotted. I might try a humidity tray. It seems to be a strong plant it has really big roots. The blooms would start to wilt and I would water it and they would perk back up.
I am using shultz orchid food really weak. I bought some fertilizer called "worm poop"(no kidding!)maybe I will try that instead.I haven't seen worm tea in my local stores , I may have to see if I can order some.

My other phal, keeps blooming but the plant looks small and week compared to the other one, and the roots on the top don't look good.

Cinnamon: Great to know, Page, thanks! I've used it as mentioned as a fungicide on damaged or cut areas including roots, leaves and stems. Mixing a small amount of it with some Elmers Glue works great to seal and waterproof a major cut and lasts longer than the cinnamon alone. Cheers!

Not sure about cinnoman on other than a freshly cut area to help prevent a fungus/infection... How is it used for scale ?? Maybe I misunderstood..it happens. :)
