Can anyone help identify this blotch on a Cymbidium from a customer

    This looks like a type of rust, and also reminds me a bit of the ink spot? (I think that is what it is called) virus with the Anigozanthus sp. As it is a large clump and appears to be in soil. Practical solutions such as fungicide applications and perhaps lifting some of the clump/s to allow better aeration may help. Possibly raise the bed also to allow greater drainage.
    Thanks for all your great orchids, wish I could visit your nursery looks absolutely amazing!

    I would recommend sending a sample to DPIPWE in Tasmania for virus testing. Those necrotic marks look very concerning.
