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.

Nine requisites for contented living: Health enough to make work a pleasure. Wealth enough to support your needs. Strength enough to battle and overcome your difficulties. Grace enough to confess and forsake your sins. Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished. Charity enough to see some good in your neighbor. Love enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others. Faith enough to make real the things of God. Hope enough to remove all anxious fears."
