Philodendron leaves turning yellow
Hi all! My philodendron has two leaves that are turning yellow and I’m unsure why, so thought I would hop on here to see if I could find an answer. I water about once a week, so the soil is left to dry out a little in between each watering. However, I went away and forgot to water it for a few weeks recently, so could this maybe be an under watering problem? The plant receives pretty bright indirect light for most of the day. If you have any ideas what this could be please let me know! I don’t want to loose him!!

These are well adapted for low light situations. Usually this is caused by a little too much light, probably exacerbated by the dry spell. Outdoors, once established, they can handle quite a bit more light. Indoors, it will get sensitive to it as it adapts to being indoors.
It may, or may not recover the damage already done, but as long as you keep on top of its care, then the new growth will come out before you know it.
If you want to give it an all purpose fertilizer at this time, you can do so. Just make sure to follow all instructions on the packaging.
