Is There Anything I Can Do To Save This Plant?
This is an anthurium I took over to take care of, but I am afraid this is out of my control... Is there anything I can do to help it get back? I would very much appreciate your support.

There are a few things that can cause what you see here!
Too much light will be the first thing to consider. They do not tolerate direct light. This must be bright, but indirect.
Cool temperatures could, also, be to blame. They are only hardy to zone 10, making them only suitable for tropical environments.
The next thing to consider will be overwatering. Though they don't like to dry out, completely, they do like a little break from the wet soil. Only water when the top inch of soil is bone dry.
Last will be nitrogen burn. Feeding with a high nitrogen fertilizer will cause burning to the leaves. It is best to use a cactus mix, with compost mixed in. This will provide adequate drainage, as well as nutrients that will not burn the plant.
