Hi friends,

This is my Blc. Pauwela Dawn, finally a new pseudo bulb has formed, and roots seem to be growing nicely.

Terra, does it feel soft and damp? If so, get a bottle of hydrogen peroxide and a cue tip and apply it liberally. It does look bacterial to me. I have seen Diplodia leaf spot look similar to this. If the peroxide doesn't help, try mancozeb fungicide.
