    Thank you, Zainal.

    All my plants are grown outside, in almost jungle-like environs. Thus, they are prone to insect, snail, and fungus damage. I don't like spraying with chemicals because it destroys the fragile ecosystem. I don't even use fertilizers because most of it ends up on the ground, which I don't think is beneficial in the long run.

    So far, most of the plants are healthy, and the plant in question does not seem to be ill despite the spots.

    The leaves and stems of my plants appear dirty and may be partially eaten up, but I have no problem with that.

    They are beautiful, I dont think I can pick one as a favourite as they are so different, the colours in all of them are beautiful.

    Default I don't think it is fair not to think about it.
