Black spot on Epidendrum Parkinsonianium

So I got this Epi from a private collection, trimmed off of a healthy looking mother plant. Got it mounted at a local orchid farm and have been watering it every other day to every third day... depending on weather. I don't let it get dry and it is in a place that gets lots of air and dappled light. Temps are moderate in the 65-75 range with good humidity.

Not sure what it is, but from reading other posts it might be a rot issue. I suppose I can try to get surgical and try to trim the infected portion off. But only if that's recommended here.

Just got a new growth after 1 month or so of my care, would hate to see it go!

Thanks!

I zoomed in a bit and it seems that's a broken stem is it just one leaf on that end that's broken off? If so I'd trim that stem off past the spot and pit some peroxide on it and damp the cut with some cinnamon powder just where you cut it at. That is if its just an old broken stem as it appears to be .....

It's not a broken stem. It looks like it in the picture though. It is the oldest growth on the plant. I am afraid that the cut would hurt the other growths and the roots around that area.

I'll give it a shot though, just went out there and it is definitely soft to the touch.

Peroxide instead of alcohol? Or will alcohol work the same?

Thanks so much for your response!!!
