    Sun burn on the phal orchid's leaves. There is not anything you can do for it. Eventually that leaf will die off after being replaced with a new one from the top of the plant.

    Wow! Do I see three spikes on that little phal? And you wonder if it's OK? Goodness!! What a pretty little plant - OK, except for the one leaf.
