    I did a search lots of ideas about the problem , I had one with it and reduced the light, which generated heat, and it cleared up on the next growth . Thanks for the search idea .

    Interesting reading , Thanks for the link , your help is appreciated .
    I have never seen it on the solid color leaf Paphs. just the hybrid mottled leaf type .
    I repotted mine in Aussie Gold awhile back they seem to really like it , makes watering so much easier , and it made a lot of diffrence in the growth rate . Thanks again . Gin
