    Default onc. papillo

    Hi,
    My Onc.papillo is growing beautifully with 3 spikes and flowers opening often. It was growing two new sections which started to turn brown and papery with black tips. The rest of the orchid appears fine. Does anyone have a clue as to what could have caused this?
    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Can you post a photo? It will probably make it easier to diagnose what the problem is and perhaps what caused it.

    Cheers,
