Cold damage

Hi,

I received a phal in the mail that suffered some cold damage. The newest leaf was mushy and has since fallen out. But it's been about two weeks and there has been no other signs of damage. Will this plant survive? Or will it die because it lost it's center leaf (like damage from crown rot)?

Thanks!
pbellina

If the mushyness is not spreading, the plant will likely continue on and eventually produce a keiki (baby plant) at the base that will eventually be the main plant, with the rest of the plant eventually dying of old age. I have an areides that lost its center 2 or 3 leaves to rot. It did start a new growth at the bottom, but to my shock and delight, the plant did the excetionally nice thing of producing a keiki right down inside of the top of the plant, where the leaves had rotted, and now the plant is growing upward and looking quite normal.
