    Default Specks on my Lycaste bradeorum orchid

    This is my Lycaste bradeorum, which I received about a week ago. I'm unfamiliar with the tiny specks that I see on the one flower, and "sprinkled" on some of the leaves. It's not the best photo, but I hope it gives some idea? If need be I can try to take a better photo. Thanks!

    I think it sun burn you can see by the edge of flower and the leave too. I could be wrong maybe a virus, just wait for other member will come to help.

    Hi Darren,

    I noticed the one on the left yesterday, and I think it was placed too close to the lamp . But the rest of the specks on the plant were there when they arrived from the grower. Some of the leaves look sprinkled but I don't have a photo of those yet.

    Actually, I just saw your arrows again and they aren't the specks that I speak of. The picture quality isn't great but you can see them throughout the flower. Haha, yeah those are burns alright
