    Default brown spot on Phalaenopsis

    I have a large brown spot on a leaf of one of my phalaenopsis. Should I cut it off or leave it alone. Thanks for the advice!

    Based on my experience just cut it and apply the raw area with fungicide in order to avoid secondary infection dont keep the lesion there is abnormal tissue.
