    Good advice from the above members. I will add that any time I have a plant with either bacterial or fungal infection, I reduce watering and let the plant dry out before watering again. Orchids are generally resiliant and even the moisture lovers can take an occasional drying out. Take that bit of advice with a grain of salt however. The ability to tolerate dryness is dependent on many factors.

    I would add - make sure you increase air movement around your plants. Add a fan. Your orchids will appreciate it.
