    Drying out or something worse?

    Recently my N. maxima (wavy leaf) has taken a pretty big downturn in health. Here's what it looks like at the moment:



    I should've taken some earlier pictures, but some of the leaves started turning brown from the vein outwards, others from the edge inwards.

    We've had a bit of a heatwave recently, but the rest of my other plants look fine and the maxima has typically been quite hardy. Is this just heat, or something else?

    Can't say for certain, but given how dry the orchid bark looks, it definitely could have dried out a bit. It seems you have 2 different growth points. The one on the right may be able to be saved!
    Have a wonderful day!

    Thanks, the orchid bark is just a covering (pure LFS underneath) but it has been rather dry around here recently.

    Both growth points are good for now, let's hope they stay that way!
