Leaves Are Yellowish-Green on an Ice Plant

My newly landscaped yard has a small ice plant (pink) in a pot on the patio on the north side of our home. The leaves are a yellowish green. Does it maybe need a bit of fertilizer? MiracleGro maybe?

Are all the leaves yellowish green or just the older leaves? Ice plants prefer full sun and do not tolerate wet soil, so be sure those basic requirements are being met. Yellowing leaves could be a sign that the plant is being over-watered. If the soil is damp to the touch you may want to consider re-potting your plant and inspecting it for signs of root rot as you do so. Ice plants also need little to no fertilizing.
