Cattleya orchid white huge brown spot help please

rwood24June 11, 2010

Ok I'm posting this again cuz I beleive my first post was too long sorry. Ok I have a store bought white cattleya orchid. Purchased in bud(no blooms) 4 buds. One bloomed for 3 days the other three yellowed and fell off, now I've noticed a huge brown spot a pic link is below, I have recently repotted hoping it'll help. Should I cut the shoot off? BTW I've grown dendros and phals with ease my setup is two 50 watt cfls and one vertical t5 20 watt . I treat the cattleya like my others please help I'm worried it won't survive. Thanks ryan

I can't tell anything from the pic. On my monitor it looks like a healthy plant. A huge brown spot could be what I just removed from a catt; it was a sunburned leaf. If you've just repotted, I'd not disturb the plant further. Is there new growth started?

You didn't need to shorten your post - the problem is the photo. If you can get a better picture we could advise you better. Try for a close-up of the spot.

I bet it's a burn and can be ignored
