Philodendron problems

I would put it in soil. It probably needs nutrients.

I have a philodendron vine growing in water.  It has a well-developed root
system and eight or so leaves.  The older leaves, however, have been
getting yellowish in color; one is so pale, it is kind of a sickly
yellowish-white.  I have also noticed some brown splatterings beginning to
form on some of the newer, healthy-green leaves.  Is my philodendron sick,
or does it just need to be transferred to soil?

Thanks for any help!
