So, I am new to orchid growing but becoming a big fan. My moth orchid has some damage on one of the smaller/newer leaves causing the leaf to be mishapen. I was wondering if anyone knew what had caused the damage to my orchids whether it be physical or the result of a pest.

Cheers,
B

Well it is physical damage but knowing what caused it is not possible by looking at a pic. The leaf looks as if it has been folded across that line and it will probably lose the top of the leaf in time. This is not a problem for the plant but it will not look pretty. Once new leaves grow the damage will be covered up.

It looks like the leaf has been bent and has cracked. As long as the torn edges have dried and prevented any rot setting in, it will not be a problem - just unsightly :-)
