My orchid was exposed to direct sunlight, and now the leaves are turning black. Help, what do I do now? Hopefully, you can give me advice to save my plant. This orchid is 4 years and was beautiful. Betsy Yule

This could be black rot; see the following articles for information. The disease is contagious so separate it carefully from any other orchids you have.
