We transported the plant (three hours in back of truck. Nursery wrapped it very well for transport.) to our home where it gets lots of diffused bright light all morning until noon. I am new at growing this beautiful plant and don’t want it to suffer or get sick. I want to know why are just three mature leaves and one small in the same general area displaying a problem.

You might want to purchase a moisture meter to make sure your plant is getting the right amount of water.
