Nice find. Plenty of water and shade and it should rally.

I also have an Orange Prince philo. Very easy to grow, and very rewarding. Agreed they like bright light, but shade. Never direct sun.

Adam I love that plant I picked up a rescue a couple years ago. It is a very forgiving plant and good to grow in the house.

I put it in this little pot when I first purchased and in one summer I had to pry it out of the pot. It is also a fast grower.

Looks like you repotted already? I would too. Great find! Philos are awesome. Should outgrow the damaged leaves very soon, but I would probably leave them on as long as the damage is stable, not spreading. Those leaves are still helping support/grow the plant, and it doesn't have many (yet, but it will!)

Cinta, looks great!

Nice Rescue! I'd remove the bad leaves and as others suggested make sure you keep the soil moist but not soggy. Like other Philo's it likes humid conditions and bright light but no direct sun. This one is also called 'Prince of Orange' Philodendron (Philodendron 'Prince of Orange')
