    Default White spot on Phal orchid leaf

    As you can see, there is a troubling white spot on a leaf. What is it? Should I be worried? I also don't think I've been watering enough so that too could be the problem. How often should Phals be watered? And it hasn't rebooted in so long, it has grown a new leaf though.

    Looks like sun bleaching to me. The plant probably had water on the leaf and got a bit burnt in the sun before that new leaf developed. The plant looks healthy. I would not worry.

    cheers,
