Virus or nutrient deficiency???

Hey everyone, long time no see

My Phal. violacea has developed some spots on one of its leaves and some mottling on another. Both are the two newest leaves on the plant. I've been bad the last couple months and have neglected my brood somewhat...

This guy was pretty dehydrated so I set up a little terrarium with live moss and coir to give him some R&R. After a few weeks in there he looked great! but then started developing these spots

Do these look like the symptoms of a virus beginning to show its ugly head or perhaps a nutrient defienciency? (I haven't fertilized this one in quite a while.) I'm really hoping for the later as this is one of Norton's blue strains...
