    Wink Orchid Brown Spot

    Hello, I need to get experience advice. My phals are in trouble. During Oct, all my phals got what seem to be brown or black spot. The leaf rooted. So I went to the internet for help and I cut the rotting parts, bathed the orchids in cinnamon and alcohol. During the next 3 weeks, i applied fungicide treatment. Now, they seem stable, until I found a spot. I'm not sure if this is leftover from last month or new infection. I treated them this week with alcohol. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! I don't want my six orchids to die and they all have some level of rough surface like the first pic.

    First pic looks like a lesion from water being left on the leaf, do you mist? Or could you have left a few drops of water on the leaf overnight? Are these spots growing? A good way to check if the spots are growing is circle them with a pen, if the spots aren't growing then the will most likely dry out and be fine.
    The other pic appears to be a developing from an old cut, if it is i would cut back another inch and dust with cinnamon. Only the cut should be dusted, as cinnamon will desiccate plants of put on too much of them.

    And i see you said all 6 plants have these spots im wondering if it could be a mild form of sun burn??

    Thank you so much for the response!!! I think you are right. The spots did not grow any more and the orchids are stable. No new spots, I think it is water damage from the time that I left them outside.
