    Hello, I am asking for help. For some time, white spots have appeared on the leaves of my orchid. It is a 2-year-old orchid, and new flower shoots have appeared on it.
    what can they provide and how to get rid of them?

    If it is mites, which I encourage you to make sure that it is by doing your research to what mite damage looks like on Phalaenopsis leaves. Should that be the case, try using an miticide soap. Failing that use dish soap to arrest them.
