    Black spotting on the Oncidium alliance is mostly caused from leaves that are wet and exposed to strong sunlight--it causes tissue collapse and a secondary fungal infection. The spots usually don't spread, however..

    That's an impressive spike. I can almost smell the Sharry Baby just
    looking at those photos.

    avoiding the black spotting is more amazing to me. Congrats on keeping it spot free!!

    I too keep a Sharry Baby but the 'tricolor' clone for it had a more condensed spike with the same wonderful chocolate/vanilla fragrance
