    Looks like a sun spot. Was this orchid near a window or perhaps a mirror where sunlight was directed onto it without any filter? The plant looks healthy otherwise. The two spots should eventually turn black if this is a sunburn.

    Welcome to the forum, Tania. I hope you participate here often.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Hi BD,
    Yes, the orchid was positioned near a south-facing window, without any filter.
    It is the first time I get this problem with my orchid...I guess this has happened because is unusually hot for this time of the year in London.
    The spot edges are already turning black...sounds like a good news to me as now I know what is going on.
    Just moved my orchid to a less bright corner, hope this will help...
    Thank you very much for the prompt reply!
    Cheers,

    Tania
