    Default L. autumnalis Heat stroke?

    This is a L. autumnalis I picked up at a recent show from the society sales table. The person who had owned it previously had passed away and they were selling off the last of his collection. It wasn't expensive so no biggy if I end up throwing it out but I think the only problem with it is that it has overheated at some point. New roots are just starting to show on 6 pb's so I' need to do something with it as soon as possible. Mounted on rotten tree fern with even more rotten sphagnum. Biggest concern is the white streaks and the fact that they follow the leaf veins. Any help much appreciated!

    Chris, those leaves with the spotts look terrible. Did the plant ever recover?
