    Good day,
    Well, my problem is - i replanted my orchid - phalaenopsis - and it did have severe case of root rot - only one root was saveable - i replanted it in bark medium for orchids - but some damage started to show and i dont know what is it - i tried to identify, but couldnt... can you help me please? And what i should do? The wound started as slightly mushy and discolored spot and evolved to this - from underside of leaf it is lookthrough - very thin place, at the crown there is some damage too, and at other leaf there is something too...
    Please can you help me?

    The leaf near the crown looks like physical damage. Can something chew on plants? Cattepillar, insects, slugs, iguana, cat etc? The leaf spot looks like some kind of infection (could be secondary to some damage). The line around the infection is drawn by you, right? Is it spreading? If not, I wouldn't worry about it, it will dry out, and the plant's defense system will take care of it. If it is spreading quick, I would cut it. You could spray the entire plant with aspirin water (325mg unbuffered tablet per 1-2 quart of water) to give the plant warning. The leaves look healthy, so it will recover.

    the lines are me - wanted to check if it was growing - while i was away it "dried"to this, it was only weird looking mush before - i didnt see any sorts of insects, or cattepillar - and cats cannot get to my room) it isnt spreading, will check for insects very carefully

    edit - checked didnt see anything, also checked last root - root rot came back even when i was very carefull with water, needed to shorten last root :( today it is two weeks from repotting

    only i think that spot at screen four is transforming to something as that other wound
