It looks like sun burn to me. A few hours with full sun on the leaves can do that on some of the lightest forms of Neo.
It is was my plant, I would cut the leaf at the tsuke junction and sterilize (hot blade) + cinnamon, just in case... it as beautiful variegation, hopefully you get it going ! The replacement is a nice plant, not as spectacular though...

Pilot, I feel for you, I also have some rot going in my collection and it is a pain to get under control! Fungicide, bactericide, systemic or not it seems to limit the damage but no eradicate it... I guess the most difficult is to know exactly the source of the problem.
I think I have to do a big spring cleaning, repot all plants at once in new media, treat everything - growing area, pots, plants, media. And most importantly do the same to new arrivals before putting them in with the crowd!

Oh don't worry about me and my tiny collection. Honestly, it's taught me a few things. 1. You can be sentimental about your plants but not let sentimentality get in the way 2. Ergo, learn to let go... 3. The healthier the plant the better-- if it's a weak plant, don't hesitate to abandon it-- it'll put you both out of your misery (this same point is applicable to life in general... fail and fail quickly!). And finally, focus... losing some of these plants has reminded me that the thrill of collecting is fleeting... honing in on a plant or a few plants that you truly love is exceedingly more gratifying than having many varieties. In fact, now that I have the few that I enjoy most, i will only buy those same varieties (such as fugaku, as each plant and such are all slightly different etc). Adding those variations is more enjoyable for me long term. but that's just me... I certainly don't pass judgment on those who do enjoy the collecting of varieties at all. It's just a personal preference.

As for treating these tikes... irritating to no end sometimes! I have a kinrujaku (tiger bean) that recently got brown rot on a leaf-- or what I suspect was brown rot. I sprayed it again, of course, but when the rot got to the tuske I removed the leaf with a clean knife to health tissue and cauterized the remaining bit. The tsuke seems to be a natural barrier, which makes sense-- the rot did not continue and it's shown no signs of any since. I mention this because I have observed several instances of this and of those plants that I removed the plant's infected leaf, that plant has survived and has not shown signs since. And of course, of these plants, they were all robust before showing any signs-- and continue to be quite healthy afterwards. My Isechabo was not one of those that I helped along and now it's gone.

I'm hoping it was just a bit of burn. No softness in the tissue & today the leaf just came off dry at the tsuke. Gave it a good drink, keeping an eye out & watching the next leaf as it pushes up. No other signs of damage.

Me too! Please keep us posted on its progress. I have an Asahiden that was closest to the window, it got sunburned on one leaf, it was a beautiful leaf and on the second to the top rung of the plant. It too turned brown, shriveled, and fell off. Now the plant looks like a snagle-tooth (is that the right name where a tooth is missing in a row of teeth?). The rest of the plant is okay, but it does look a little odd. I acquired another Asahiden to replace it, just in case. Now I'm thinking when it comes time to repot, I'll put them together, to make it less obvious. I'm wondering if that breaks some Neofinetia good presentation rule?

It does in a way Matt because a plant will not be allowed to be judged if it has split in its pot or if it is made of several parts.
Other than that, it is your choice of aesthetic ...

I thought so, s.kallima...where is the sport in putting several plants together? For now I have no plans to show any of my plants, but your good advice is welcome.

One interest I see in putting some plants together in a pot is to free one pot, therefore an extra (different) plant can come in

That is a practical consideration. I have seven Higashidemiyako. One plant is in my special Ginger Red Orchid Neofinetia Pot, it is a huge plant. The others range in growths from one to five fans, all have two or more spikes. I would like to put the smaller plants together to save space.

7 Higashi! Wow...
I would definitely put some of the smallest together sharing a pot, or if you have a bonsai pot big enough and a few lava rocks, you could create a Higashidemiyako landscape!

I won't show my plants. But I do group them together too. Love grouping them. They seem to do better in company.
