for the past 2 weeks i've been placing my philodendron by the window, letting it hang out into the sunlight (sun between 9/10 till 12/13 o'clock). today i got it in and was SHOCKED !! many leaves became pale. the whole plant feels soft and some leaves just fell of!

did i really burn my philodendron???

what can i do to help it get well again??

From the look of the light in the picture and guessing that your plant was normally kept in low light, I think you did burn it. I keep all of my philo's (short for philodendron) in low light during the winter. When warm weather arrives I gradually work them up to bright indirect light so they can enjoy summer outside in a shaded spot. I think the jump from low light to such bright light was too much for your philo:(

Over all the plant doesn't look too bad. It will loose the burnt leaves, but it looks like it will recover and continue to grow for you. Eventually you will have some nice new growth that you can take cuttings of and restart the the plant. These are great plants (one of my favorites:) and they can survive almost any mistakes we humans may make. :wink:

your right foxy -- they are great plants and mine does seem to recover :) it lost all the leaves on the bottom already -- i cut the empty :roll: great word missing :roll: i cut of the empty bottoms now and put them in a glass of water to root.
there are only few more burnt leaves left --
