    Exclamation Pink Spots on Dend. Kingianum Leaves.

    Hi all, I have some concerns about this D. Kingi. It has pink spots on a couple of leaves on different canes.

    Any comments? They are dark pink. The flip side of the leaf is unaffected.

    Looks like it could be pigmentation-do you give it strong, but dappled light? That could do it. My kingies that i grow out in the sun go dark purple.

    hmmm, interesting. This one is on the rack in the extension and gets strong, but dappled light , just like you mentioned it. The other one is outside but is unaffected!
