Something is eating my Philodendron leaves

I have an outdoor Philodendron which is re-emerging from the cold winter. Something is eating the leaves at the base fairly quickly, but I have not seen any caterpillars, and not noticed any slugs or snails? Any thoughts on what the culprit might be and means of control?

RE: Something is eating my Philodendron leaves

Thank you for your post. I didn't know philodendrons could be hardy. I have 7 or 8 pots of Philodendron Hope the one they say is hardy. I will be planting on the edge of my bog garden. Learn something every day.
