Hi All,
I've had my Masdevallia coccinea for about a year now, with no other issues.
About a month ago, it developed browning in the centre of it's leaves. It's not been in bright direct sunlight.
I was wondering if anyone might be able to tell me the cause of this?
Thanks

It dose look like a burn to the leafs at looking at the pic, this could be due to heat exposure cold exposure.
But a few more questions, is the affected area firm or soft because if it's soft it could be fungal or bacterial.
But other than that I couldn't say for sure with out actually seeing the plant.

Thanks very much for your reply, the affected area is hard, dry feeling. It doesn't get that much light really, but perhaps its just a sensitive soul.

If this has had direct sun then I would say scorch. They want bright but shaded light if that makes sense.
