    Big Black Spots?

    There's large black spots on my N. Madagascariensis's leaves; It doesn't seem to be starting from either the tip or the base of the leaf. It starts from the "outer" part of the leaf though. Am I being paranoid or is this a problem? The plant is only around 2 inches high and sits about 18 inches from 4 32 Watt T8 bulbs + light from the west faving window the rack is set up against. I water it every three days - when the soil looks dry.

    Without a picture, it is hard to tell. Perhaps the leaves are simply burned or, else, you may have a case of sooty mold - - which is ugly but not pathogenic to plants. There are products on the market to deal with that . . .

    You can see the blackness on the edges of certain areas of the leaves.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not experienced with many Nep ailments, but this looks like ordinary stress and burning from change in conditions. I've had a number of plants display similar patterns (sometimes a different color than black - a weird dark red on leaves that aren't normally red, etc.) but it's never turned into anything serious. I'm sure some more knowledgeable folks will chime in soon here - in the mean time don't worry too much about it. In the worst case, you've caught it early, so you're on the right track.

    On your camera setting change it from small to large so it turns to be a big pic.
