Hi all, I have just noticed some brown markings running along the veins of the leaf. This is an indoor plant. Gets taken outside once a week where I hose the plant down and at same time give it a good watering. Fertilize it every month with seasol liquid fertilizer and soil conditioner. Thanks

I think those symptoms are relatively minor in terms of the overall health of your Lyrata. Exposure to direct outdoor sun or high temps at the time a new leaf is emerging could cause those markings. Make sure your plant stays in shade when it is outdoors.

Thanks. I sometimes leave it outside for a couple of days and it may at certain times of the day get some sun, but it's mostly in the shade.

Outdoor sunlight is many times more intense than indoor sun. Even an hour of direct sun on a plant than has been acclimated to indoor light can be problematic.
