Spots on leaves?
What does it mean when spots start to appear on the leaves?
0ft to light, indirect
6” pot with drainage
Last watered 2 days ago

This is actually a monstera deliciosa. These look like fungus spots due to overwatering. Please check to make make sure the roots are ok. If it is brown and rotted, I would cut away all the bad spots and leave the healthy white roots. Change out the soil to well draining soil, with an antifungal spray. Let the it dry out for about a day without watering. Then water it with a hydrogen peroxide solution of 1 cup water and 1 tsp peroxide. Don’t water it again until the soil is dry.
@calvina thank you, I'll get right on that. And thank you for informing me of Queen's proper name
@calvina I checked the roots and none of them seem to be brown and rotting, I'm transfering it to a new pot with perlite mixed into the soil to see if this will help
@witchesspells it’s now in good soil. It will take some time to recover from transplant. But put it in some bright indirect light and water appropriately and it should be bounce back. They are such survivors. All they want is a good soil, sunlight, and the right amount of water.
