Default Is this true and typical BSV?


As some of you may remember,after the winter,my Ice Cream grew 2 leaf and then ceased growth. At some point later it produced two pups and when these grew 2 leafs,the first of the 2 leaf produced by the mother plant this year,began getting black ''burns'' that ended up as black stripes along the leaf veins,some of which were clearly just between 2 leaf veins. Then,suddenly,both pups produced a leaf with well defined patterning on the leaf veins consisting of darker and lighter colored ''squares'' on each individual leaf vein. One of the leafs even got some necrotic spots along the leaf veins. All these seem too suspicious and like BSV for some reason got activated. What do you think? Here are some photos taken today:

Does the above plant has BSV as the symptoms seem to indicate to me at least? I would really appreciate your help!

Thank you very much in advance!
