Seems to be a common question here but I haven't quite found the answer.

I've attached a photo of what's taking place. Purchased 1 weeks ago from Sprout home here in Bklyn NY
They have a pretty well lit space, but this little guy seemed to have been ostracized (not sure why) from the other (youngish) plants of the same species. I didn't think much of it, looked healthy -- although I'm a newbie so I'm not sure what that looks like. I notice some spots on it while examining it at home first night.

I have it on my window ledge where it gets direct sunlight from 9a – 12ish. Facing a large back yard on the 3rd floor in the city so it gets lots of indirect as well. I mist the leaves (and soil slightly, 1 or 2x a day) as it was pretty droopy on the 3rd day and things seemed to perk up.

Any ideas of what could be causing the brown spots? There seems to be a bit of white film (circles) on the top of the plant as well ...
