    If you're not already, make yourself familiar with the Saint Augustine Orchid Society's website. It's great for helping ID pests and diseases, but beware, it can also make you think you're dealing with something, while it's actually something else.

    Orchid Pests, Orchid Diseases

    I'm sorry to say that your plant appears to be virused, to me.

    Thanks, Ray! That is a great reference source. They have a downloadable pdf with tons of pictures, descriptions and solutions.

    Thanks for the reply, well it's not mine... Was going to pick plants from that garden center... I guess I made a good decision to wait.
