Cattleya/ Epidendrum disease

ifraser25(z11 Brazil)August 22, 2013

A disease is devastating my Catts and Epis. Other species seem to be little affected. Has anyone any idea what it is? I had an infestation of orchid beetle about 6 months ago, but thought I had dealt with it (Neem). I have seen no sign of the beetles recently.

I have had something similar affecting my Gongoras. No idea what it is. I'm spraying with Sevin, Malathion and Neem oil/agricultural soap at weekly intervals in rotation. Just started don't know yet if it is going to work.

How devastating.

Wish you both a good recovery.

I'm sorry. I really should have posted this on the "other" forum. I was probably intending to. It has turned out to be something of a Sherlock Holmes mystery.
