Q.I Am Unsure What Is Wrong With My Plant

Zone Kuala Lumpur | Anonymous added on November 24, 2021 | Answered

At first the soil was dry and the leaves were brown so I had cut the brown leaves and decided I needed to water more and moved the plant outside onto the balcony as it was first in the living room. As I began watering more i noticed the water pouring out of the draining plate and after doing research realised it’s because the soil was very dry after a while that problem stopped and now the leaves have started turning yellow and it can’t be due to under watering I think the top surface of the soil is dry.
