WOW! Today I bought my first orchid thinking how cool it would be to have one. It was droopy and in bad shape, but I paid $1 for it at a rummage sale so my expiations were not high. Some quick research, repotting and a little bit of water and sun and the top leaves have perked up. The second tier is looking a little better, but not perky yet. Then after dinner my husband and I were talking about it and, well, just staring at it when he pointed out to me several bumps all over the underside of the leaves and along the main stem in a few spots. The bottom tier of leaves has many more bumps on it then the top tier. I hadn't noticed these before and am now freaked out. They are very small... maybe the size of the tip of an ink pen,brownish and rounded. I gently scratched one off and it was firm and kind of whitish on the underside. He thinks that are some kind of bug cocoons and I don't know what to think. I would love to post pictures, but I don't have a digital camera at my disposal right now. Does anyone know what the bumps might be and what I need to do? Thank-you!
