yellow. China doll was doing really well this spring but leaves started turning yellow and tips brown. It is in a plastic container with poor drainage and soil. Can I repot it in Terra cotta and use different soil? It was under a ceiling fan briefly but I moved it cuz of the draft. Now it is very unhappy.
