Default Brown leaves?

Wondered if any of you are having this same problem. Not all but some of my newly emerging leaves are popping out with dead spots on the leaves. They are all kept in my greenhouse and treated the same. I,ve had quite the time with bugs this year but I don't think that's the problem. Maybe a little too much water combined with cool temps, and the fact that they are young? Maybe a disease? They are alive but I hate to see them flawed. It just bugs me.

One of my dwarf cavendishes did the same thing as yours. I just looked the other way and hope for the best.
The next spear appears to be free from brown spots though but it is too early to tell.
It is now 3 feet tall and I hope that it will bloom this summer.
