•Placed in north facing window with no direct light, but enough to maintain health and produce new shoots
•New leaf shoots, barring one, are turning transparent on the edges although lighting conditions are ideal
•Fertilized appropriately, as well
•watered every three weeks- plastic pot - well draining soil
•misted every morning and evening
What could be causing the new shoots to emerge and become unhealthy?

|The transparent leaf edges are not apparent in the photos. If there is a problem with newly emerging leaves, it is usually an indication that there is root damage due to improper watering.
If your Calathes is in the right sized pot and in a proper soil mix, then it would not be able to go three weeks between waterings.
