I posted this question on the gesneriad forum, but it seems like no one visits there much.

I've only had this Strep for 1 month and this has just started happening to the two leaves. It sits right along side another strep that is doing just fine.

Could it be cold water splashes? Looks like what happens to mine when cold water sits on the leaves.

I don't think so......I'm very careful about that. This is not good.....I wish it WAS cold water splashes. I think this is something that will get progressively worse. :(

For those interested, this question was answered on the Gesneriad Forum last Thursday. Taught me something I didn't know and I've been growing Streps for donkey's years!
