    Default Dendrobium leaf issues

    Over the last few days I've noticed some issues with a few leaves on a couple of my dens. Some leaves look like they could have been eaten by something, but a few of the spots look weird. Not sure if it is a fungus or something; doesn't look like sunburn. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks!

    Check for slugs! Also looks like some sunburn.

    I would agree with Harvey, looks like slug damage. You can pick up some slug baits at most local depots, they work well, but you need to keep it up. It can be a problem down here!

    I would think slugs or snails as well but it is odd that it is older leaves that are damaged. They usually prefer new growth and flowers.

    Concur with Harvey. Slugs/snails @ work. Catch them at night and repot if required
