    Default Fungus On Paph?

    Hello everyone,
    I have about fifteen Paphs and they are all doing well, but one. This is a Paph. Gloria Naugle and has this red stuff growing on it and it has gradually been getting worse over the past six months. Can someone help me ID what is wrong and possible remedies. I have sprayed/dipped in Phayson to no avail.

    Could be rust fungus. Be sure your plant gets lots of air movement. Put a fan on it so that the leaves dry off quickly after watering.

    I would isolate the plant so it doesn't spread to others.
