black stuff on my orchid?

I can't take a picture til the morning, sorry

where the roots connect to the bulb(pseudobulb?), there is black stuff. it has been there for a few weeks, hasn't grown any. i have had a new leaf sprout since seeing this, so i don't think its crown rot. any ideas?

Waiting for the picture as I can't think of anything other than mold but that grows with time...

i wanted to check it's roots because last month it had a ton of dead ones. so you guys get to see the roots too. upon taking these pics, i discovered that the black isn't there any more, so that really shocked me. but now there is brown stuff.

picture 1: look at the middle. all of that brown is concerning me. and i noticed spots on the leaf?

picture 2: do those roots look ok?

picure 3: a close up of my concern

picture 4: repotted & sunbathing. my poor disfigured leaf...

and this is the disfigured leaf if you're interested. my 3 y/o decided to pluck it off when it was barely an inch long.

The phal looks good. I don't think you need to worry. This doesn't look like rot.
