Exclamation Brown areas on Phragmipedium besseae leaves

So, I've had this Phragmipedium besseae 'Big Bob' x 'Colossal' for a while now and it has recently taken off in light of the fact that I'm actually taking care of it now. This plant has had these brown spots for a while but I had always assumed that it was simple mechanical damage. Now, though, they appear to have become a little soft & sticky. I'm going to assume that whatever it is, the prescription will be "chop off the parts that are doing that, sterilize the wound, and see what happens," but I'd still like a second opinion...
