    Default Help with my dgmra winter wonderland.

    Hello friends,
    I have a dgmra. Winter wonderland white fairy with new growths, they look very healthy but recently they develop these brown spots on the new growth leaves. Pls give some advice what could cause this???
    I grow them in a shade house outdoors.
    Could it be the cold, our min temp now is around 10C but day time temp is around 24C. I use to mist them early in the morning and they dry out by night time. Pls help!

    Could be a fungal or bacterial infection.

    Stop wetting the leaves. That achieves nothing, but can set you up for the issues you are seeing.

    I assume you mist to raise humidity, but you really aren't. Read THIS.

    Thanks Ray, how do I treat the plants now? I guess those leaves will be like that forever.
    should I separate them from other plants?

    I know this post was a month ago, sorry I just saw it. How is your dgmra doing now. Better I hope. These are one of the Onc. intergenerics that I love and hate to think of it in distress.

    They seems tobe doing fine but the brown spots are still there. Fortunately it did not spread to other leaves.

    Thats what we call bittersweet news. Sorrow over the lost leaves yet joy over the rest. Just glad to hear you haven't lost the whole plant. Could I get a peek of the blooms? Not for analysis, just for pleasure..

    They haven't bloom yet, though the plant is big now. I guess i have been giving too much high nitrogen fertiliser, they are still producing new growth. But I'll surely post some pics when they flower.

    Many oncidium type orchids get tiny brown spots when they get enough sun to bloom. I would not worry unless you are seeing a fungal issue. The larger spots are concerning if they continue to grow.

    cheers,

    The brown spots are not the type you are saying Bruce, they look bacterial /fungal infected. But now they look ok as i have trimmed the infected parts of the leaves and have not spread to other parts of the leaves.
