Black Spots on Angreacum Crestwood
Default Black Spots on Angreacum Crestwood

Around the time I got it, my Angraecum Crestwood had developed small black spots on some of it's leaves, I removed the worst ones and circled the some of the ones on the healthier leaves. It's been about 4 months now and the spot haven't spread and for the most part remained the same size with the only change really being the slightly sinking in? I know the were just shipped when I got them and may have suffered some fertilizer burn, are these spots just normal Ang. aging of stress marks from their original shipping or is there a chance it is infection and it's just stalled due to colder weather?

The spots probably came from a bacterial/fungal issue, maybe some cold. The spots haven't spread, so I wouldn't worry about them. They sank a bit as the damaged tissue dried. The damaged areas on the leaves will just be there until the leaf drops in the normal course of aging (which could be a year or two) But the leaf is doing it's photosynthesis job so you would not want to remove it - you want the plant to have as much strength as possible, that 's what you need to get flowers... and that's the goal. Orchids develop ugly leaves in the course of living... the flowers make us forget or ignore those imperfections.
