A blade of my plant has turned yellow, and it looks as though another one has begun to transition. I'd like to stop this before the entire plant dies, but I don't understand what's happening.

Is my plant sick? Or is there some sort of mineral imbalance? Maybe I'm over-watering it?

  • One leaf, with a second turning, is of little significance - leaves do get past their best, turn yellow, shrivel and fall. But need a photo please – Bamboo Apr 22 '17 at 15:08

Overwatering is the most common cause of houseplant problems. Follow these practices:

  • Let the top inch of soil dry out before watering again
  • do not let the plant sit in water
  • provide a sunnier location, for these plants that can grow outside in Florida a location next to a south, east or west window with unobstructed sunlight is perfect
