I have bought a Caladium Plant last week. When I was potting her, I accidentally cut a few roots. When I saw some of her leaves wilting I associated it with my clumsy hands. But just today I noticed that some of her leaves are now turning yellow.
I water her,lightly, more like sprinkling for about half a minute, once everyday because I read that they like to be moist. The yellowing I assume is predominantly because of root-rot. I've gathered with a little research that over-watering aids root-rot
- I'm growing her as an indoor plant.
- I place her outside my window (no direct sunlight) for a few hours (almost) everyday.
- Most of online blogs suggest watering to keep her moist. That's what I'm doing (Am I overdoing that?).
- Most of her leaves are quite healthy.
- Some leaves though are just rotting partly (no yellowing though).
- The partly suffering leaves suggest me that it's not over-watering. My diagnosis is that she has caught an infection.
I seek, as an amateur gardener, advice. Looking at her image, does it look like the yellowing is due to an infection, or over-watering?
