What are these spots?

Asked June 9, 2019, 9:50 AM EDT

I have a beautiful elephant ear plant. I kept it inside when i first got it to get used to the sun before putting it outside. After bout 3 weeks i did put it out back with lots of shade after 4 days i notice spots on one leave i brought back inside and now its got all these spots. How do i help this plant? I tend to water every 2 weeks. I can tell that new growth is coming but super slow.

Thank you for your question. With the information you’ve provided, I do not know whether the plant has a nutritional deficiency, leaf scorch, or some pathogen. I suggest you consult your county Extension office directly for advice. Here is their webpage: http://cesanmateo.ucanr.edu/ Good luck!
