To much water or to little.
Could be : too much water, too little water, not enough light, or too much fertilizer. You go from there Jonchel πŸ€—πŸ’šπŸŒΏ
I would also check for thrips :) It could be something else but always good to use process of elimination!
@Peachyhoyas @SvelteKingfern thanks I will start checking everything
Ensure your Philodendron gets just the right amount of light; too much can impact its well-being and leaf vibrancy. Keep in mind, these plants aren't fans of direct, intense sunlight, which could lead to leaf sunburn, showing as discoloration and, occasionally, yellowing. Here’s a link to check: https://blog.leonandgeorge.com/posts/philodendron-yellow-leaves#:~:text=If%20your%20Philodendron%20is%20receiving%20too%20much%20light%2C%20this%20will,discoloration%20and%20sometimes%2C%20as%20yellowing.
I don't think it's sunburn. Sunburn appears at the direction the Sun or the grow light shines on the leaves, whereas here the yellow colour is on every leaf, and more at the edges of the leaves. It's not what @HappyPlantBFF suggests.
Thrips would be my concern too. Hoping I’m wrong!
I sprayed and wiped the leaves even though I didn’t see anything on the leaves. I will keep looking thank you all. @SvelteKingfern @HappyPlantBFF @Peachyhoyas @Bporter14 @debbiedo
