I got this beautiful monstera adansonii yesterday. The plants at the nursery were sitting at the bottom of a shelf near a window and it looked like someone had just watered them. I chose the best looking one, but the leaves seem to have yellow splotches all over them. A few of the leaves have a dried out, brown tip. One has a brown spot and another has a yellowing outline. New growth as a few to no holes. A few roots are peeking out from the bottom of the nursery pot. Should I report it or wait a while longer? My plant is now sitting near a west facing window....is it getting too much sunlight? Or is it overwatered? Any advice would be much appreciated!

|Keep it moderately close to the west window, but far enough away that the sun does not fall directly on it for more than an hour or so in the afternoon.
It is not yet ready for a new pot. Allow the top half-inch or so of soil to dry before watering it thoroughly.
