    No prob, Mike!

    I just haven't had any troubles with the plant, nor with the fungal thing spreading to any nearby plants (and they are close packed.) I have no problem treating it, but does it hurt the Epi? Seems the canes lose their leaves anyway.

    The 'old banana peel' description was my own, but the guys at _________ knew exactly what I meant by it, so I figured it was an accurate description.

    It's comforting to know that while an orchid will never likely be named after me, perhaps a fungus might...

    LOL! A fungus named after you? I can see it now:

    "My leaves have all these spots--help!"

    "Oh that. That's just Julie. Spray it."

    It does happen in my GH but then again I am always battling fungul bacteria problems and have to break out the big guns a few times a year to keep it in control. It's all my fault though, too many plants in too small a GH.

    I have not noticed that it harms a plant in any way but is unsightly.

    Mind if I use the description in text? heh heh

    Hey man,

    I've lived for this moment. If my feng shui is...well...fungal...than so be it.

    I've been known to cause spots before.
    But I'd really rather not talk about it...

    Mike,

    My preference is that you use the description. If you must refer to the fungus as 'Julie', I suppose I could live with it, but it's not my first choice.
