    Default Oncidium

    I lost a leaf first week I brought this one home. The tips of the other leaves were turning yellow, but I think it has stopped progressing. Any ideas for how I should treat the black spots?

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada! Oncidium are susceptible to spotting on the leaves but it is always best to post a picture of your problem plant.

    Hello from Colorado!

    Where do you live and how often do you water the orchid? Agree with Chris, pictures allow us to give better advice.

    What kind of Oncidium is this plant? It looks more like a Bulbophyllum to me.

    Thanks for posting the picture! I would have to agree with Matt that is a Bulbophyllum not an Oncidium. Did you post the correct picture? If this is the correct picture, have you ever sprayed for fungus?
