    While I cannot be certain, I think it is more likely a bacterial infection, like pseudomonas.

    Keep the leaves dry when you water, and it may not spread. It's probably not worth worrying about.

    Maybe just heat damage. Nothing to worry about.

    Thank you... I calm down Heat damage (or oedema) is really posible, because I keep this cymbidium near a window.

    I always found cyms tended to just do that for whatever reason so I'd lean toward heat as Geoff suggested.
