    Default Sunburn?

    Is this just sunburn I'm hoping? My other divisions in the same area don't have it.

    More than likely Sunburn. Appears to be on an older leaf so not quite as resistant.
    No need to panic, shift plant or add a small bit of shade, don't over compensate.

    I may be incorrect but anytime I see red coloration in a leaf I move the plant to a little more shade and the problem has been solved.
    I also do not believe this hurts the plant and I have found in a couple of instances it needs to get that higher level of light to bloom at its best.
