Why did the new(ish) leaf turn to this translucent white color?

I put it outside to eat a lil was it too much light and will color regain?

Hi Markuscurillious, Welcome!

Your Heart Leaf Philodendron (Philodendron hederaceum var. oxycardium) appears to be in a pot that is quite large for the size of the plant. Confused I'm not understanding your statemen: "I put it outside to eat a lil."

I don't know what caused that single leaf to turn white but I don't believe it was from too much sun or the leaves would all be scorched. That one leaf won't likely turn green again so you can snip it off.

You think it will grow faster is I put it in a pot a little bit smaller? My theory is it would grow to size it's been getting new life on it daily though well growing daily at least
