Hello everyone!
I am writing to you about my Philodendron which is gradually losing its leaves. One becomes more and more yellow, then it falls off. And so on, one after the other. That's already 5-6 leaves. And I don't know how to stop it. I repotted it. Do you have any idea what's going on and how to stop it?

Thank you all!

hi, did you put your philodendron facing a window with direct sunlight?

Hi, I'm having the same problem. It's located in a well lit room and I water it once the top soil dries up - that's once every two days. 8 to 10 leaves have turned yellow and a few have already fallen off. I'm afraid my plant is dying and I don't know what to do. ☹ When I checked with the nursery, the person there asked me to keep it close to the window in direct sunlight during sunrise or sunset for two hours. Tried that for about a week with no change... now I'm just watering when needed and watching it wilt away...

hi, perhaps you could put your philodendron away from the sun for a week and see if that works out for you.

Hi Mandy, I did that on Monday. Moved the plant indoors but in a well lit area. There has been some improvement but a few of the leaves a still looking a bit pale... Not entirely the healthy green we should be seeing. I'll continue to keep it indoors for another 7 days or so and watch the progress. Thank you for the suggestion, I'll post an update by the end of next week... :)
