Is there a doctor in the house?
This little plant has been in suspended animation for at least 6 months..we had a very traumatic move that required my plants to live at my mother in laws.. outside under her privit bushes. . the only shade available. After all these months of doing nothing, it is going downhill rapidly. I am keeping it apart from the rest of my plants until I can figure out if it is terminal or not. Any suggestions?

thanks for your diagnosis Ursula. Is this one problem or two? I've seen the dreaded black death before but not the pitted leaf thing.

Lindsay, I find that whenever my Phals start to show this pitting, they never really recover. They grow a new leaf and then drop the last 2 leaves until the plant finally gives up. Might as well make room for a new plant in bloom.

My Little Stars has little dark spots on the tips of the leaves. Any ideas? I don't think that they were this way when I got it.

Have you fertilized it? Sometimes this is a sign of over fertilizing. Anyone else with vast experience with binosas?

I have Brassavola Little Stars, I wouldn't worry about it, unless it gets really worse. You will lose older leaves, if however new leaves start dropping, you have a little problem. But at this point I don't see anything bad.
I would take a close look at the little white dots on the right side growth and wipe them off, before they take off....

Thank you, both Kathy and Ursula! I have not fertilized yet. The white spots came off when I watered it. Will keep watching it, though.

On my garden walk today I noticed this on my bletilla...is it from a cold night ?
Should I cut the bad bits off?

Lindsey, it does look like a touch of frost. I myself am never that fast on cutting something like this off until it is blooming and needs to look nice.
Kathy, I don't know, I have never grown them in pots. I do know that they are receiving maximum light here on my South facing house wall and they have good drainage.
