Yellow splotches on my two newest PWP leaves
Shes in a lechusa selfwatering pot and under a growlight for ~12ish hours a day; humidity is between 50 and 85% the last couple days; older leaves have no yellowing or browning of any sort; she hasnt been fertilised either;
The lights are about 50cm away from her
When i got her the torn peaf was developing and i thought the yellowing on it is because of the stress and everything but the newer leaf has it too so any ideas what i can do to better her experience?
I get a new leaf every two weeks on her as well; #Philodendron #PhiloFlock #philodendronwhiteprincess #PlantAddict #PlantCabinet

I have a similar issue with mine. I think it’s a combo of slight under watering along with being too close to the grow light. In my experience, philodendrons can’t take too much bright light.
🌿 Chlorophyll gives a leaf its green color. When the leaf loses its chlorophyll, the plant abandons it and begins to absorb leftover nutrients from the leaf. That's why once the leaf turns yellow, you generally can't make it turn back green again. You seem to be doing everything right. You may want to put it in a clay pot and hand water it by hand every 1-2 weeks. Since the yellow leaves will not turn green evaluate if you should snip and let it grow. I often remove sick leaves from my plants so it does not rob or stress new emerging ones. Hope your Pretty Little One gets better soon.🌿
My guess is that your plant is getting a little too much grow light which is causing burn. Hope your pretty plant improves. Light burn causes brown and yellow areas on the leaves.
Exactly as @Pegster and @GroundedGoddess have said. I would not suggest snipping anything yet as the leaf is still healthy enough to give nutrients to your plant πŸͺ΄πŸ€πŸ’š
