|I know you have them since we all do! No question is stupid. We are all learning.|

|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?

|Hmm, I would pitch this one for sure.|

|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....

|Ah, I need to change the name on my list to Brassavola!!! |
Thanks for your input Ursula!

|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?

|Some of mine that started emerging in pots died. Oh Ursula????|

|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.
