I just sprayed neem on it, my guess is thrips got to it.

50f - 85f temps
60% minimum humidity
Outdoors, in very low light.

I can easily move it indoors or give it more light, any advice would be highly appreciated. I was told it needs low light but I think I might be giving it too low light.

Thank you.

Thrips should be visible with bare eyes. The larvae are yellowish, also large enough to see easily. I don't know how many thrips species attack nep. Just that neem oil was not effective in my case. Severely infested plant emits drying leaf smell. Detectable 50cm away. Check underside of the leaf see whether there is any. Another possible pest is spider mite. Very small moving red dots. The one that infests nep does not make web. The best chance to see them without magnifying glass is under strong light.
