Brown tips on big, curly leaf philodendron
Sorry I don't know the real name of this plant but I call it "Curly" and my other split leaf with the plain leaves, "Moe."
When I took Curly home and repotted him with a support in which to tuck his air roots (which I haven't seen more of since then), I saw a bit of root rot so I broke it off and made sure not to overwater. Because of a friend's decorating advice, he was in too much darkness for awhile and I tried to help by turning on a flourescent lamp nearby. However, he was reaching, so I moved him to a window (which I wanted to do from the first so please don't repeat the obvious!) I personally did not see him as a green accent to the decor, so I returned to following my instinct.
I water all and any of my plants only when the first inch of the soil is dry, usually once a week at most. The light all over my living room is indirect but there's more of it by the windows. Curly now faces south but there is a neighboring house only 3 feet away so it's still indirect light.
The earlier leaves have brown spots randomly on the edges, usually at the tip but one of them has it on the sides of one of the finger-like leaflets (term?). One of the newer leaves has a brown tip, too. However an even newer leaf does not. Is it possible that if I just wait for the plant to recuperate from its earlier experience, that the brown tips will stop? Or do you think the condition will eventually infect the new, new leaf? Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon?
