Bleach does not break down in the bottle. It's primarily a sodium hypochlorite solution, so unless it is contaminated or you let the water evaporate, nothing happens.

Hard to say for sure, but I suspect acidovorax - a.k.a. pseudomonas. If so, it is a water-borne bacterium that typically starts with a ~1/4" spot, then gets brown around it.

Whether the collection of wild orchids is illegal or not is a matter of Vietnamese law (I don't know).

Internationally trading them would be illegal under CITES.
