    It might look like that because of heat stress and/or overwatering. I had a rokko x fallax, where all the leaves except the new ones looked like that. I air-layered it and the cutting I took is doing very well. After taking the cutting and not watering it (the older plant, not the cutting) as much, it has decided to sprout two growth points from the two "newest" nodes, which seem to be developing well.

    That there is a bad case of sunburn, Amps don't like alotta light. You can tell by the red on the leaves and the burn marks. If you have a plant thats taller, use it to shade the Amp.

    Also looks like there was water on the leaves while the lights are shining on them, the water intensifies the light burning the leaves more so than regular leaf-burn. And the worst burn marks are in the shape of water drops..
