I'm not sure if it's a nutrients deficiency or overwatering. Soil is composed of potting soil, peat moss, and perlite

I might guess that our resident expert's (Will) first question will be - can you show us a pix of the whole pot/plant please. My first question is usually - where do you live? How old is it? Where do you keep it? ETC. I do not think lack of food is a very common obituary for house plants. Gene

I'm not sure Brunnera is well suited to houseplant life, but am fascinated by the attempt. Since it's only hardy to Z9, it may need some semblance of winter.
Brunnera (Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost')

Thanks for the ID, Tiffany. The only Jack Frost I know appears on my windowpane in winter. So I have no experience with this plant at all. It is not a tropical species as are most other indoor plants. I suspect it would struggle indoors during the winter, as Tiffany suggested.

LOL! I hope Jack always stays on the other side of that window!

I don't have anything to share about it either, aside from seeing the occasional one in somebody's landscape when I lived in OH. Gorgeous plant, I hope it works out!
