2 of my paphs have rusty indented spots on the leaves (just one spot each). Maybe a water spot that was left too long? Spray with physan against fungus?
Also, the darker paph, I think it will be the top picture, has 2 purply spots...kind of darkened. Not indented, not mushy, top of leaf only. ??? Advice?

I've had one or 2 phals with something similar, I figured out it was some sort of pest. My possible suspects were white fly, thrips or spidermites, never quite figured out what it was but spidermites was what I was told it looked like. I hit them with a dose of a systemic like Actara and that fixed them, repeated it about 5 wks later just for good measure. It is possible that it's just a burn spot, in that case put some hydrogen peroxide or cinnamon on the spots to stop any possible infection. If you do both then you're covered both ways if there is still any doubt. One of the more experienced members may be able to give you a definite answer, but I hope I helped a little. Good luck.
