    Default will phrag orchids leaves darken after reducing sun exposure?

    I have a couple of Phrags who's leaves got pretty light from too much sun.
    After cutting the light considerably they seem to be getting nearly transparent green streaks.
    Do they regain the green after a while?

    well if they are going transparent, no. This is typical of sunburn. My Coelogyne suffered the same symptoms after i forgot to bring it inside after some decent rainfall.
