Q.My 8’ 55 Year Old Split-leaf Philodendron Leaf Tips Are Brown & The Leaves Have Tiny To Small Yellow Spots

It is in a totally glass sun room and has been there for decades. In the last year or two it has gotten a new shoot which is now 2 1/2’ tall

The brown and yellow spots indicate bacterial leaf spot. You need to remove the affected leaves to prevent spreading. If most of the leaves are affected, only remove 1/3 of the leaves at a time, doing it in stages.
