Hi John,

That's a shame, I can only see 3 leaves on your original phal photo so I guess the leaf that fell is hidden behind one of the larger leaves and was probably a lower leaf ?

It could be due to a number of reasons, just keep your eyes on the remaining leaves for any disease creeping through the whole plant but in this case, I personally think this was due to the fact that it was in transit so long, we have had warm weather and the plant was moist and in an enclosed box full of stagnant air for a week.

Phals are evergreen but do lose the lower leaves through age but these are replaced with new ones so you won't notice the loss, hopefully that leaf will be the only casualty and any further losses wil be due to natural aging.

Steve
