I've had a calathea ornata for almost a year now, and it is located in a partially shaded area of my home, which gets some indirect morning sun and gentle, indirect sun the rest of the day. The plant itself, overall, seems to be healthy. I haven't overwatered, yet I do mist it lightly with distilled water every evening... with that being said, the new growth that is forming seems as if it's being sunburnt before the leaf ever fully opens. There is a certain discoloration, on the edges and within the inner portion of the leaf. I'm certain the light and water levels are appropriate, yet am stumped with how to fix this issue. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Can you post some photo?
