Help for sick baby phal

My orchid vendor sent me a free sick baby noid phal....

Some help would be greatly appreciated! Where do I start with this poor reject?

The white liquid droplets and moisture are from insecticide as it appears to have scale? My apt is small so I don't want to risk the exposure to my other plants.

Thanks everyone!

Have you repotted it? The medium looks pretty new. If not, you should. If you've checked the roots and they are plump and firm you're ok. Anything you see that's mushy or rotten, clip it off with clean, sterile knife or clippers and dab the cut area with a bit of cinnamon.
Seems that the plant looks like it has a good chance, despite the ugly little markings.
Good plant to learn by!

I would agree - from what you've shown - with a little warmth and TLC it should be fine - it appears to be a generally healthy plant.

It does still look viable. If it were mine, I would check on the roots, just to confirm what is good or bad and trim away what can be trimmed away on the root area. I have a noid phal which had some odd mechanical damage on the leaves, but it just continues on to grow.

Just give it time, give it good air circulation after watering and hopefully it will acclimate well. Happy growing!

Thanks everyone! I used every bit of advice!

Well, seaweed fert?... I haven't seen it around in these parts. The labels on my fertilizer (if they list the ingredients) are just typical chemicals and minerals. Sounds interesting and exotic though. I will keep an eye out. I'd ask but my Dutch is so unintelligible, vendors just stare at me in horror as I try and explain what I'm looking for...

The medium does look pretty fresh, but I checked up on the roots and noticed it was quite soggy inside so I took the plant out and let it and the medium dry out for the day. There were some roots that were squishy and dead, snipped those off, doused the cuts with cinnamon and then repotted it last night. This morning, the leaves are bit less curled! We'll see how it goes.

Thank you guys!

Interesting. The Seaweed Extract I use is derived from Norwegian Kelp. I would think you could get it where you are. It's not really used as a fertilizer, but as an extra boost for root formation and helping relieve replanting stress Good stuff!
