I recently adopted(rescued from a slow and painful death) a ctenanthe burle marxii from another department. The poor thing was completely neglected. It perked up pretty quickly, and has even put out a few new leaves. But I'm worried about some yellow splotches. I thought it was just an effect of bouts of extreme thirst and then the occasional overcompensating drown it had experienced, but the new leaves look like they're getting little yellow spots on them as well. I can't take a picture of the plant itself but here is a good example of one of the afflicted leaves. Many but not all of them look like this.
Thanks in advance for the help!

That almost looks like something from a bug infestation, like aphids or something small. What does the back of the leaf look like? Can you get really close up on the area?
