What causes the brown spots on my African violet? It wasn’t on a normal watering schedule until a few weeks ago and it started getting new growth so could that be it?

6ft to light, indirect
5” pot with drainage
Last watered 4 weeks ago
They don't like to sit in water, and don't love water on their leaves.
She looks perfectly healthy besides that brown spots. How many times do you water her?
@LittleCrow I normally water when the top of a soil is a little dry
@PlantTherapy wait a little longer, if top soil is dry it can be stil wet and the bottom. πŸ˜‰
Maybe try watering with a squeeze bottle to avoid the leaves; this is what I use for my African Violets. Like @LittleCrow said, they don't like their leaves wet.
@AwesomePlants agree with this! This is what I use for my African violets because I don’t have those special pots they thrive in lol
@MeganO I didn’t know there was a special pot!
