    Paris Lalicata Is this the only part of the plant that has this black discoloration? Is it spreading, or is the plant showing any other signs of distress? What kind of light/ how often do you water?

      Madison I’ve had it for a few weeks I’ve watered it once when reporting and it sits near a south facing window so it gets okay sun. I’m waiting to take it outside when it gets warmer

          Paris Lalicata Hmm.. I would honestly just try to follow up with the proper care and monitor the discoloration to see if it continues to spread, or become necrotic. There's a chance if the plant experience a period of drought it could've caused this and it might be able to dissipate down the line. Otherwise if it continues to spread and worsen then there's a chance a fungal infection could've developed ! Patience will be key :)
