    Default help with identifying spots

    I received this orchid, BRSDM Shooting Star, for my birthday. It has some spots on the leaves and bulbs. I'm not sure if they are a fungus or from sun or normal. Help with this would be appreciated. To play it safe I sprayed down the plant with a physan 20 mix. I would like to put this with the rest of my plants but want to be sure before I do so.

    I am with Ron on this. I would keep it separate until you figure out what is going on. It looks fairly healthy to me though. Great blooms.

    Thanks. I will probably trim the one leaf off that has the most spots & keep up what I'm doing.
