Hello.

My friend purchased this plant less than two weeks ago, (she is going to try to return it).

But now I'm curious.

What is causing the damage on the new leaf? Bugs? Or sun?

And what are those worms?!

The spots are on a new leaf. It is likely that there may have been a watering or light issue at the time that leaf was first emerging.

Those look like centipedes. Not good quality sterile soil was used.
