Unknown spots on orchid

Hi all this is my first post and I need a little help with a phalaenopsis that I have. I've started to notice some black spots on the central axis and also around the base of the roots. Is this something I should worry about and if so is there anything I can do to help it?

I've attached some pics and any knowledge would be massively appreciated!!

I think the leaves are spotting with black spots signify of a bacterial or fungal disease.

Are the spots staying the same, or becoming more numerous or getting larger?

You can judge by comparing the photos above to similar photos taken a week or two later. If they are not growing (or if you just aren't sure), I would wait, and not treat for anything. The spots could just be simple mechanical damage.

If getting larger/more numerous, it could be fungal. You could try Cleary's (aka Thiomyl).

Cinnamon is also a good fungicide.
