    Sure, I'd cut that one, dead, old root, out. It's not rotten, just old and dead. Rotten looks differently and smells.

    I think jwalker meant the black part of the stem:3
    I have the same problem with wondering if I should cut off the black part of the stem too.

    Oh and jwalker, if you pot yours in bark and perlite, let me know if your phal drops some leaves please.

    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
