Plant leaves turning yellow

Zone 11648 | margo2450 added on November 12, 2016 | Answered

I've had this plant for 3 years. It's growing new plants also. Do you think pot is getting too small? Also, I bought a window blind, think it's blocking the sun, but light can still come through.

The yellow leaves may be caused by overwatering. This may be because the plant is no longer getting as much light, so that it cannot use as much water as it did previously. I recommend increasing the light level, if possible, and waiting to water until the top of the soil feels dry.

I think the plant is fine in its current pot, but if you want to divide the new plants from the parent and place them in separate pots, you certainly can.
