Spots on my peacock's leaves
#peacockplant #cathedralwindows #nogrowth

Hey everyone!
I'm hoping to get some light as to whether there is actually an issue with my peacock.

The symptoms are brownish spots on some of the leaves and a lack of growth whatsoever since I got her (last Jan.)

She sits near a West facing window that's shaded by a tree outside (minimal direct light for half an hour at most per day). I bottom water every week with distilled water. The humidity sits around 45 and I haven't tried to raise that level with any sort of method.

I do suspect the stunted growth could be related to shock from when I repotted a couple of weeks after I got her, followed by a day or two when I accidentally left her next to a cold window for one night (around 50 F).

I'd appreciate any thoughts or tips you'd like to share!
I have always struggled with my Calathea not getting enough humidity. They are now both in the bathroom and have humidity trays and a humidifier.
Yeah, that's something I'm going to try when I move. Not having a window in the bathroom is the worst.

Have you found marks like these in your calatheas due to not enough humidity?
