I'm new to the forum and just found you from googling! everyone seems to be so helpful Smiling

Could someone help me out on my BOP? I first purchased my BOP May 2019 (see photo below).

My home faces south and I've been keeping it close to the window in the corner- see photo below

I have re-potted it in March 2020. I've definitely have new growth since last year and a new large leaf just appeared this month!

Sorry, now onto my question, I just noticed today while misting that I have this light green and brown spots on my one leaf. I looked around and did not find any spider mites as I read someone in this forum had them on their plant. (back story, I had a small rubber plant that had spider mites but I have now trashed it and it was never near my BOP). I don't know if it's too close to the window as I face south, or if i'm not misting it enough. I love this plant and hoping someone can help me out!

Can someone help me? My birds of paradise was doing so well and now the lower leaves are turning yellow. I even have new growth.
The photo was taken couple days ago and now today my leaves are even more yellow. What did I do?? And what do I do to fix it? Cut the leaves?
