    Default 4 of 5 phals looking like absolute hell...

    I only have 5 Phals one is clean and has been in with the other healthy orchids 4 the last 2 months. (is also spiking for the first time )

    The other 4 look like they are following a while light. Roots had some rotted bits but all in all are quite green and firm. 3 of the sick 4 are spiking, however the LEAVES look so bad I think I may have to cut the spikes.

    Anyways here are the pictures.

    I was thinking the spots were a result of my puppy shaking in the bath about 3 feet away. Anyways I started to protect the phal shelf and spots stopped appearing. Now two weeks later there seams to be more spots and I have no idea what they are. Puppy has not had a bath in the last 2 weeks so I am at a loss.

    Help would be greatly appreaciated.

    Hi , It looks like a fungus /rot problem , I would give them a good going over with some Daconil might not be spelled right , can get it at one of the large stores that have plant sprays ect . If any of the spots are soft and seep , section them out of the leaf , apply the spray and coat the cuts with cinnamon , keep the damage dry , and be sure they have good air circulation . If they have had a bug problem sometimes the trouble is secondary . Good luck with them . Gin
