Q.My Night Bloom Cereus Has Strange Spots On The Leaves I Just Emptied The Dish Underneath The Pot Which Had Collected A Lot Of Wate

r. I can’t tell if an insect did this or if its from too much water or something else. I have not had this problem before so I really hope I have not killed it! It has been outdoors in part sun/shade through this summer’s drought and recent cloudbursts! Thank you for any suggestions!
