Hi guys, I'm new in plants and I bought a young philodendron Gloriosum that was shipped without a pot, just a little peat. So when it arrives, I put it into a pot with a potting mix and pour a B1 vitamin on it.

The plant came with a torn leaf (total 3 leaves) and 2 good ones. Now the torn leaf is turning yellow.

I live in Indonesia, warm and humid weather. I placed it indoor for a night before it turned yellow like this.

1 photo is the yellow leaf and another one is the good one.
Please help...

The yellow leaf is likely due to the stress of it being shipped barefoot and I am assuming dry. You should remove it it will not recover, and your plant needs to use its energy to re-root not maintain a dying leaf.

Gloriosum is a creeping/scrambling philodendron, sometimes ti will have its true stem (the trunk) slightly aboveground. New plants will emerge from the trunk as it grows and ages. I think yours is planted a little too deeply. Also you should amend the potting mix with a lot of perlite and fir bark or coconut husk chips to make it well draining.

If its warm and humid outside, it would be much better to put the plant outside than keep it inside. It can use the humidity. Hopefully it had a decent root system? All you can do it so let it try to get re-established. Don't overwater it.

These are some of mine, growing in the ground

Thanks, I think my soil was too wet as well. So i repotted it using mix potting soil, cocopeat, perlite and roasted paddy skin (I don't know what's it's called). Cut of the yellow leaf and water it. The water drained quite instantly so I hope it's growing well now. My Gloriosum doesn't have some kind of stalk where it grows from, right below those two stalk joints, there's the root.

I've had a similar experience with shipping P. Gloriosum and I concluded that it just doesn't appreciate traveling bare root. It probably doesn't help that there isn't much stolon.

I agree with putting the plant outside. My one plant is now three, and I'm contemplating putting a couple of them outside to see if they like it better.

You're placing them outside? under a direct sunlight? I'm still placing it indoor and try to get some indirect light as possible for it. My house does not get much sunlight after all, so it's kind of difficult for the plants. If I place it outside, there's so many pests around so I wouldn't dare.

I will probably put them in my screened porch eventually. We have some construction going on now, so I haven't yet. There's no direct sunlight, but very bright indirect light. I generally prefer to put a plant in a home and leave it permanently as my feeling is that they don't like to be scuttled about, but I do have a few exceptions in my brood.

I'm not a fan of pests necessarily but I do have several ferns that go out every summer and back in every winter for the last 3-4 years. They are plants, after all, so they come from the outdoors. Maybe your pests are different than Ohioan pests, but it's nothing here that a quick shower can't handle.

I can attest to the efficacy of a proper grow light for supplementary light if your indoor conditions aren't bright enough and you don't want to put a plant outside. I have a whole basement full of plants that live on grow light alone.
