Last week this was looking great and it's the first time it's flowered in years after i mounted it on cork last year. This week some of the old leaves have gone yellow and spotty but the new ones look ok. Gets daily watering with rain water and rainmix

Sorry I can't help Marco as I have a lot of trouble accurately identifying some of the 'diseases' of our plants.

Due to my growing conditions, I only have 2 massies, the only one in the grow-room (decumana) developed black blotches similar to yours on all but one of its few leaves quite soon after I got it.
I mixed up and applied a paste of cinnamon and water to its leaves and left it there, weeks later I removed all the blotched leaves leaving only the one healthy leaf.
It now has seven healthy looking leaves and looks like the healthy plant it should, this all happened within a year.

I don't know if it was the cinnamon which helped.

In your case, I would remove the blighted leaves (they don't look good, aren't going to improve with age and MAY be harbouring something you don't want there)?, and just keep an eye on the healthy ones.
As you say, they are the old leaves which are affected, I'd like to hope it's just the natural cycle of their aging & dying?

It's a smashing looking flower by the way, there aren't many with that shocking "Day-Glo" pink colour.

Steve

Thanks Steve. I will try taking off the leaves as you suggest. I am pretty sure they would drop off soon anyway.
