FAQ

What should I do if the leaves turn yellow?
Usually, when a plant's leaves turn yellow, they are sick and dying. First, make sure you haven't over or under-watered it, then check for weeds, pests, and toxins that could be killing the plant. This also happens sometimes if a plant is given the incorrect amount of sunlight, so moving it might solve this problem as well.
