Q.Why Would The Leaves On My Birds Nest Plant Fade To Light Green
My plant was very healthy until one day, nothing having changed, one leaf turned a very pale shade of green and limp. The new shoot is still in the opening position for almost a week now. Light and watering are the same. I re-potted it to a larger pot but, the plant seems to have stop growing and other leaves are fading in color and strength…I do not feel the re-potting is the issue. Thank you!

The repotting could be the issue if the container was more than one size up. The extra soil actually can cause root rot, a complication of overwatering.
When leaves start to yellow and limp, I immediately think of too much water. You don't mention fertilizer, it may need a fertilizer pick-me-up.
