|I've had this Congo for about 6 months now and literally overnight it started developing these muddy, brown patches in the middle of the leaves. It's not like a sunburn or anything. It's randomly across the centre of the leaves and makes them very bendy. Its only really apparent in two of the leaves, but I can notice a little spot on another developing. Does anyone know what this is or how I can stop it?

|It may be a physical/environmental cause, such as sunburn or some chemical damage. Exposure to very high or low temps are also possible causes.
If there have been no recent environmental changes, then it may be a more systemic problem. The photos don't show the entire plant so it is hard to diagnose. However, the pot looks very large with very dense potting soil that appears to be very dry. There may be root problems that are now causing foliage damage. Better information would be helpful.
