    Default What's up with this vanda leaf?

    I noticed this one black leaf earlier this week. The blackening seems to be spreading up the leaf, but otherwise the rest of the plant is healthy. The vanda hangs from a tree where it gets pretty direct sun in the morning, and filtered light for the rest of the day. Any suggestions on how I should treat it? Should I just cut the entire leaf off, or cut just above the black area? Physan? Cinnamon?

    Any and all help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Concur with Yew Sung. Cut the leaf and apply cinnamon powder or sulphur
