This is my Phrag. Barbara Leanne that gave me some beautiful flowers a couple of months ago. Last month, some of the leaves started to have these light brown patches here and there.
I got some Dragon's Blood from Eric and rubbed some on the leaves.
The new start didn't have anything on it, but I applied some on it also while I was at it. :)

I'm not sure if it's the result of Dragon's Blood or what, but no more patches developed and the existing ones stopped getting bigger.

The brownish dirty spots in the photos are where the DB was applied.
I put on plastic gloves and just rubbed them all over.

BTW, besseae and its hybrid that grows funny this way, am I supposed to bury the long base of the new growth to promote root growths??

Ok. I usually cover the base of Paphs when they are not buried enough in the pot. I think I will repot this phrag as soon as the weather gets cooler.
