So earlier this week, I opened the syran wrap to air it out, but then fell asleep. It was left uncovered for about 8 hours. Nothing seemed dry except the soil. I tried to fix the problem by misting heavily the next two days.

So since then, I've had yellowing, browning, melting, and fungus. I'm not sure if it's from being left uncovered or being over misted. I felt like it was the misting so I've stopped misting the past couple days. It doesn't look bad, but I was hoping to flood soon. Now I have to wait a couple more weeks.

was it green before the treatment? it might be cyano. I cant say for sure because you treated it before taking a pic.

How do you like that ada output? I'm thinking about doing that one or the regular ada lily output.
