    Default Ascofinetia with purple spots

    Anyone familar with this? These pruple spots showed up about 2 weeks ago. Not sure if its a light exposrue issue, (morning sun), or a bacterial/fungal thing going on?
    Thanks,
    Tony

    Nah. Nothing to be concerned over. It just is what happens when the plant is recieving a lot of light.

    Thank you, Naoki. I was a little concerned, 'cause this one has been a slow starter for me, and I haven't been doing as well as I thought I would with Neofinetias either

    As Naoki says - just 'freckles' caused by the sun.

    My most freckled plants are rhynchostylis or have it in the background.
