Brown Crown?

That is the part of the Orchid thats called a crown? anyways!! my 1st thought when I seen that was crown root, I heard that happens when water settles up on that part of the plant.

Yes this is the crown, but this is not crown rot. Your phal crown looks fine to me. It's not uncommon for the pigment on the leaves to look reddish or brownish. If this were crown rot, it would advance very quickly and would be soft and mushy.

As has been said above if it was crown rot it would black and soft/mushy. How does the rest of the plant look?

The rest of the plant looks great, even the roots look pretty good, and there is nothing mushy about it, guess I was fooled
