I'm very new to growing plants and I really really want my plants to thrive, but so far my Monstera is not doing great at all and I'm afraid I killed her. Sad She is fairly large plant and I placed her in room where I have 0 windows and skylight, letting in very little light, and that seemed to work well for her and I made a really stupid decision to bring her outside to have some "fresh air". I don't know why and I know now that it was definitely not what she wanted. Well, I went somewhere and ended up getting side tracked and not getting home until later in the day. She looked TERRIBLE when I returned. Sad Her leaves were burnt and her stems were falling.

Its been two weeks of me trying to revive her and while she looks like shes not dying, she doesn't look very pretty. I can include a picture later on when I am home. But some tips about how I can make her look nice again are appreciated.

Some leaves are still brown, should I cut them off? I cut two to propagate, but I'm just not sure if I should just cut all of the not so pretty leaves as well. Tips on general care for this plant as well are very much appreciated. This is my first large plant, I can't let her die. :(

Her name is Saoirse by the way and she's a very classy, calm mannered gal. I love her.

Shoot a photo of classy, calm mannered gal, Saoirse, so we can see what you are talking about.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
