It can mean a number of things, but you can keep a close eye on these parameters.






It is very hard to say what is going on, here. If this is a fresh planting, then it could be that it is just growing new growth. If this is in shade, then it could be lacking, slightly, in light. Another possibility could be nitrogen deficiency, or pH imbalances. It could, also, be soils that remain too moist for too long. Unfortunately, without checking for certain things, it can be hard to say.

In the meantime, this article will help you to care for the plant:
