I recently purchased a philodendron micans. When I opened it up I saw a few weird spots but didn't think much of them. But the new growth seems diseased and I don't know what it is! Fungus, virus, bacteria, pests?
Worse of all I think it's spreading to the nearby plants
This is a new leaf on my philodendron brasil (this has not happened ever before on any other leaves on this plant)

The spots in the photos do not have the same characteristics so it is unlikely to be a disease of any kind. Leaf spots are generic symptoms with several possible causes. Even slightly less than perfect watering can cause some leaf spotting.
