Ask a Question forum: Problem with Monstera...Leaf Scorching?

Could this be leaf scorching in the pictures below? It is only on the undersides of some leaves.

The plant only gets maybe 1 hour of very early morning direct sun. Maybe this is even too much?

How should I follow up now? Should the leaves be removed?

Thanks for your help!

Monstera deliciosa, I assume.

Are you providing good drainage and not allowing the plant to sit in water? Are you watering only when the top inch of soil is dry?

Leaves don't sunburn on the bottom and the tops wouldn't burn in an hour of early morning sun. More likely, your plant is water logged.
