    Default wierd leaf problem

    Recently I've had white spots show up in the middle of the leaf. One per leaf they are anywhere from 2" acrost to 3 or four depends on the leaf. They are kinda mushy and eventually turn black and fall away leaving me with a leaf with a round hole. I'll take pictures when I get home from work.

    Thanks for any ideas though.

    Hey Wolf,


    It sounds like sunburn. I am nursing my friends fathers paph back to health and put it where I *thought* the sun didn't shine (heehe, that sounds funny). I came home on day to find long straight white marks on the leaves. I discovered that during a certain time of day, the glare from my block windows put a beam of light exactly where the marks were. Luckily, I caught it before it was scorched to death.
