My plant has not been doing too good :( I keep it kind of...

#Philodendron
1ft to light, direct
6” pot with drainage
Last watered 1 week ago
Maybe the soil was wet as you haven't exposed the soil to the sun. The only thing you can do now is to chop them and propagate them, new leaves won't be growing on the old nodes even if you manage to thrive up the plant. It's going to be bald.
Hello @CopiousCatbrier Welcome to Greg! Looking at your pot, it looks like it may need a repot, more soil added, or a pot size change.

If you don't have any yet, grab some perlite and orchid bark (see photos). These can be found locally or online for about $7 and will always be good staples for plants.

Take the plant out the pot and inspect the roots. If anything is mushy, remove that and spray the remaining roots with peroxide.

Mix the perlite and bark in with your container/potting soil so your soil mix is a little chunky to help with aeration.

There should be about 1-2" dpace in the pot around the root ball. Choose the pot size according with drainage holes.

Once you repot of add more soil, water. You'll need to give your heartlleaf more light. If you don't get natural light or a lot of it, consider a grow light.
