Thank you Cym Ladye,

I have used the pesticide to be sure... I did not see any sign of infestation... But to be sure!

An interesting fact: the cym growing just above this one does not suffer from any such spots (atho it does now seem to be shedding leaves quite a lot :-( ).

As I age I put things into larger pots so I need to stay strong.

Hello,

an update on the small spots on leaves - I have studies my other Cym (the one I thought did not have the spots despite being close - despite that I used the pesticide on it along with the Tracyanum). Today I found that it does in fact have the same spots I observed on the Tracyanum, and they do look like from a pest - there is a dot in the middle of each one (this is the macro picture of the leaf), and the new leaf growth has these dots. On top of this a couple more leaves have started to turn yellow (the left part of the plan on the picture) on a ~3 year old bulb (7-10 leaves have wilted already which I wrote off to the plant shedding as they do each fall). I cannot find any sign of the pests themselves. Should I be worried?

I hope I am just overanalyzing the plants...

I think, relax... those big soft leaves of Cymbidiums receive "insults" - As far as leaf-shedding goes... Cyms just do that... and more this time of year (I go through my Cymbidium area every few days, collect fallen leaves, or end up with a mess)

Thank you Roberta - I will try to keep calm as you say... It is my only flowering cym so far so I probably have a more than healthy attachment to it... :-)
