That occurred to me as well. I did have them outside, but protected.
However, there may have been a few nights with temps down into the
40s. I have removed the leaves with the mottling, and we shall see.
The new foliage does not look affected. I did spray with the
insecticidal soap mixture that Pam told me about. One part to nine
parts water. I hope it was just cold damage.
I'll keep you informed. I am going to take a day course in plant
pathology in a week from Tuesday...I will bring the plant.
