    on the last picture, a new root is growing up. Are the leaves burned? Looks so. I keep my plants humid in the shadow, no direct sunshine.

    No, it is not burned from the sun. I hold it too on the the shadow on the pot from bulbus. Each sheet has at least a brown dot.

    Do you have spider mites problem? Those markings on the leaves look like secondary infection(fungal or bacterial problem) after the mites...

    If you have mites, take care of that problem first.

    I think not. I watched with a magnifying glass, but I did not see anything like mites.

    Lina, it looks like fungal disease to me. As prevention I suggest that you isolate it from your other orchids.

    it also looks like a fungi or bacterial problem to me.
    those mites, or false spider mites, cant be detected sometimes, but if you rub your fingers on the leaves, especially underneath, you would see a reddish/brown color on your fingers.
