Cymbidium, yellowing and spots

I bought this Cymbidium at an Orchid show last week. I re-potted it and I placed it with my other orchids. Phals on the top shelf and others needing more light on the 2nd shelf with 6 extra hours of florescent light in the morning. I noticed that about 3 leaves were turning yellow and cut them off and some have black spots. My Sherry baby has black spots which is normal. Do you think this is anything to worry about.
It was cheap (maybe that's why)

Hi, Cymbidiums are a hungry plant and need to be feed with a quality full strength fertilizer, potting mix looks far to open, thus it drys out to quickly, it should be just moist and then re-water again.
It needs a very bright lit area and plenty of fresh air movement to get option growth.
The spots are or look like a fungal problem often associated with lack of fresh air circulation.

So it needs more feeding, more sunlight and plenty of fresh air to grow and flower to perfection

My friend Missy
Good growing, Ron
