Answer: I'm only guessing but I think you are describing mealybugs. These pests are common on orchids and can do some damage so you will want to control them as quickly as possible. There are insecticides that are safe to use on orchids that target mealybugs, or you can simply dab each fuzzy mass with a Q tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. Repeat treatments may be required. Good luck with your project!
