    that was something i was wondering about. the times I see plants starting to discolor at the mid ribs would have been root rot...... that was my alternate hypothesis....

    How did you eradicate the thrips?

    I suggest you make a determination whether or not that may be your problem before assaulting the plant with pesticides.

    Thrips are not hard to see, but use a magnifying lens to inspect

    i cut off a leaf and inspected under a stereo microscope at approximately 10X. The picture below is what i saw. There was only one adult visible but a few molts were also observed so keep an eye out for those too.
