Fungus or Pollen

Arranging my PhapsToday - I notice FUZZ on the underside of the leaf. Being still new to Orchids & diseases, Do they pollenate like a staghorn plant?

Orchids are generally pollinated by bugs or something else that transfers the pollen from one flower to the next. If the fuzz is on the leaf then it could be something else.

If you can take a picture that will help with an ID but in the mean time move it away from the rest of your plants till we can get a beter ID.
