    I 've just purchased a 4-feet tall michelai maudiae and put it in a east facng deck to avoid direct afternoon sun. I found brown patches on some leaves. The size of the patches is increasing and that worrries me.
    Any advice on watering schedule, soil type, light...; any info on the plant profile?
