HELP! Big black spot on leaf
Default HELP! Big black spot on leaf

I don't know what kind of orchid I have. I am new to taking care of them. I noticed yesterday that there was a big black spot (size of a quarter) on it with what looks like tiny black raised spots in it. Maybe some kind of bug??? Too small to tell. I accidentally left it outside overnight & it did get some direct sun. I also water in the morning & never get the leaves wet. Thinking it was a bug I treated the leaf with a soap & water mix. Now the spot has doubled in size with a lot more tiny spots/bugs. How do I treat it? I almost want to cut the infected part off. Please help!

Some help for the

By the way... to Orchidboard
