    Default Pot. 'clouds creek heavenly scent'

    Hi guys!
    This one has bloomed again for the second time this year! Yippee!
    BUT...there has developed a strange mottling on one of the leaves...I'll post a photo of it as well. The same mottling exists on another catt but much more advanced. I'm thinking virus of some kind. Originally I thought they had become sunburned somehow but they are in a greenhouse, so, unless some orchid gremlin has been paying a visit-I'm stumped!

    Mabuhay!

    Congrats with the blooms. It happens to me sometimes but somehow it just subsides.

    I think it is attributed to THRIPS, or SCALE or MEALY BUG, where the insect sucks the juices from the cells and causes them to collapse and die-causing these spots. But that looks a bit more suspicious-seperate from the others and try using a good insecticide, and if nothing works after a couple of months, send a sample to a lab for testing good luck!
