Brown leaf after one week
I got Jadis a week ago and when checking her for watering today noticed she has a brown leaf. She is on my balcony and receives no more than 3 hours of sunlight that has to filter through the giant poinsiana in our front yard. Her sister plant is slightly more shaded and has no damaged leaves.

Do I just put this down to the stress of moving house? Or should I be moving her to a more shaded area?

I would move to a more shaded area and let her acclimate to her new home. I would also let her dry out completely before watering again
@SportyLilac she was completely dry when I checked this morning. I might move her along to the next post which has shade cloth in front of it.
I would, probably stressed. I usually keep in pretty filtered light at first. Who knows what she was exposed to before you brought her home. Could it be scale? Does it scratch off?
I would remove, at least the damaged area of the leaf, and watch for additional changes.
3 hours of direct sunlight may be too much for her!!! I agree to move her to the shaded post!!
Definitely move your pothos into indirect light. Looks like sunburn on that leaf. Pothos like bright indirect light.
Happy growing πŸ₯°πŸŒ±πŸŒΏπŸ’›
@mysugaredlife I totally agree with what @Sassylimey said. I have many pothos and they all receive bright indirect sunlight.
Thanks everyone. I really appreciate all the advice, it is so hard being a new plant mum 😨
You'll be ok Natasha, you'll get lots of good help here on Greg.
Sometimes I think each plant has its own personality even of the same species, and if course their own needs lol. πŸ₯°
