The newest leaf that just unraveled has a rip at the tip of the leaf and some browning near the base. What could have caused this?
i have the pot on top of a pebble tray for extra humidity.

These leaves can tear very easily. My large BoP looks like a palm tree near the bottom because of people and pets waking by. A few tears here and there are to be expected. Your leaf looks like it just had some physical damage.

The leaf looks beautiful!
@sarahsalith good to know. Thank you!
How is your lighting conditions?
@sarahsalith agree with Sarah about the fragility of the leafs, so easy to be teared
@Hmoursy it’s right next to a large southwest window. Gets a bit of direct morning light but is indirect rest of the day.
@nila can you install any light meter application and test the light reading in Foot candle ?
