Hello Marek.

Hi everyone !

Could it be possible that it is Hippeastrum scale mite ?  I'm not sure what
it looks like when it is developing, but the mite gets in between the layers
of the leaf, cause some scale damage & a by product of their damage is a
visible reddish mark underneath the scale on the leaf surface.
Some rust problems also start with a similar scaly look & the redness could
be spoors developing.

If u treated your plants for both or similar symptoms, u should cover a
range of other similar problems. Make sure u spray well into the centre of
the new growth not just the infected outer areas.

Best of luck
