    Post White Marks/Stripes on Leaves

    Good Afternoon,
    I have white lines/marks on the top of some leaves of my orchid.
    Every other part seems healthy and one has still flowered.
    Any help appreciated.

    Without a real closeup, it's difficult to be certain, but the first two possibilities that came to mind were too much sun or mites.

    Is this a sudden thing, or has it been around for a while?
