Can you help diagnose problem with my red anthurium lily?
Hi - I have this red anthurium lily on my dining room table, it gets bright indirect light. I thought it needed a little sun so put it outside but I think it may have gotten sunburned. That’s what I initially thought anyways but now it seems to be getting worse. I am not sure if this is recoverable or should I just toss it? I’d like to help it make a recovery if I can I just can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. Help! :)

It, actually, looks like a bacterial infection, although they do not like direct light at all. This will burn the leaves, but it doesn't usually show in that way. You can try a mix of 1 part peroxide to 4 parts water and water with it. Just make sure that it dries out pretty well between waterings. It will not want to be wet constantly.
The affected growth may not recover, but you will know that the treatment is working when you have new growth that looks normal.
