I have had this happen and it's often an issue with the pH of the potting mix causing nutrients (iron or magnesium) to not be taken up appropriately. It is probably time to repot.

LWP can you post a photo of the discoloration? I have had two develop white streaks on new growth and the issue
resolved itself in a couple of months. I thought it might be heat stress. In any case, I just left the plants alone and
the discoloration went away with the very hot temps.
