    Kerri, you'll find that quite a few orchids, especially those with oncidium in them, tend to get the dark spots when they're getting enought sunlight. The spots might not be that attractive, but it typically goes along with the proper amount of light to produce the flowers.

    Thank you so much! I've read in a few places that they were common, but I didn't know if that was actually the case here!

    I see nothing in your pictures that indicate anything not normal. If you are referring to the leaf that is cut, I have no idea. Oncidium type orchids seem to always have small black spots on their leave. Just keep an eye on it.
