Is this powdery mildew or something else?

Liz, I don't think it's powdery mildew -- maybe a little sunburn, or spots from watering?

I don't spray with water. See how it is sitting in a pink thing? I water into that. It drinks all the water during the day. I fill it again in the evening and it drinks all the water overnight. No water on the leaves. Happy to hear it's not powdery mildew. The curlicue pattern on a couple of the leaves is pretty AND concerning.

Oy. Thank you! I will spray with neem tomorrow.
