    Default Brown freckles on Vanda Orchid leaves

    I recently bought a vanda at the Orchid Show in Madison,Wi
    I have it in a south facing window that gets full sun for 8 hrs.+.
    I noticed that the leaves are getting tiny brown freckles on the top side and a lot of new root growth. My question is are the browns spots from the sun exposure and is that good?

    Thanks, Mike

    Hi, if you could post a photo, it would help others recognize the issue. It could be normal or it could be a fungus.

    Cheers,
