Dark Brown Spots on my plant

On 3/31/07 I planted several sword plants and then over the next week I added additional plants to my 120 gal. tank. There aren't any fish yet (next week ).

Over the last week or 2 one of my plants has developed dark brown spots that are now making a hole in the leaf and it seems to be happening on all 5 leaves of the plant, one of the leaves is starting to turn yellow on the end, none of the other plants in the tank appear to be having a problem and I'm not sure what to do with the one that is...can you please tell me what happened to my pretty plant? Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

The swords were probably grown emersed(out of water). The emersed growth will die and new aquatic growth will replace it. It probably won't look the same as when you bought it.
