Hi all. New here. Need some advise.
Been a collector of CP for 5 years now and just started a bog garden in the past 6 months
All go well until the least few days when my plants developed these spots

Any idea

Looks like mechanical stress/damage to me. It shouldn't be a huge issue for you. If this progresses, please let the forum know so we can help you guys.

That said, I may be wrong, so I encourage others to give a 'second opinion' on this topic.

Suis you splash water in it during the heat of the day? It looks like a water burn to me.
