    Default burn or bug

    Hi it's me again, with two brand new questions about my orchids.........

    Picture number 1: Are these spots on the leaves burns or some kind of bug?

    Picture number 2: I think I asked this one already but I didn't get an answer or maybe I still don't understand what to do with them. These Uhhhhh......I think they are called "INFLORESCENCE", should I cut them off? How do I do that?
    What about the new flowers......are they going to come out the same old holes where these inflorescences used to be?

    Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer my dumb questions.

    Hi Dess, the pictures are a little microscopic, but the first picture looks like an infection (bacterial/fungal). Treat it with Physan.

    Hey just read your questions, you can cut off the inflorescence, it is completely dry now. The new flowers will come on a new inflorescence not on the same spots.
