Morning all

Just looking for a little reassurance and explanation to why a new leaf would unfurl to reveal its damaged as pictured1 and weather or not is should purne it off one it has fully opened?

Any help appreciated, have a lovely weekend all.

Leave it alone for now and let it finish opening up before drawing any conclusions about its cause or health.

HI its now grown out and the edges are ruined but beyond that its a healthy leaf.

i have however found that the plant has started developing some weird spots on the leaves. it was in my bathroom so i can only guess there're caused by sitting moisture on the leaves. Anyone got any ideas on whats happening here?

Many thanks
