Semp friends, never had this issue, looks like something is chewing on the leaves, any thoughts and solutions? Thx

None of the other semps have this issue at this time.

Rj, do you have slugs? Or possibly hail?

Looks like slugs or snails to me. Generally they don't go after semps much although they do eat the cobweb itself as it's more pectin than other parts of the plant.

If you can get some diatomaceous soil that is a good way to get rid of slugs as to them it's like walking on broken glass. You should be able to order on line as most of the gardening supply companies sell it.

Thanks Kevin, I do have some diatomaceous earth from my aquarium days, surprised they would just concentrate on the one, vs all the others
