It extends until the whole bud is brown and dead. The rotten spring bud will seriously affect the growth, reproduction and flowering of the whole orchid plant in the same year. As the saying goes: spring buds are prosperous, summer buds are weak, autumn buds are improperly counted. If the spring buds are rotten to death, they will not get vigorous new seedlings in that year.

Snails, aphids, shell insects, ground tigers, mole crickets and other pests began to harm orchid plants and new buds; rainy and wet weather will aggravate the occurrence of brown spot.
