Yellow Leaves On Houseplants
If you are a number of houseplants in your home, sometimes you may find some yellow leaves on some of them. Generally it means a simple solution for resolving this issue, so you do not need to worry too much about that. The abnormal yellow leaves usually means there are less or more resources provided to your plants. You should find out the unbalanced elements and do corresponding compensation for your plants.
The first reason which may result in yellow leaves on your plants is over-watering. Usually, at most once a week of watering is adequate for most household plants. Excessive water will make their roots rot and cause the yellow leaves. The simple way to determine if the soil need to be watered is that you can carefully observe the top soil is sort of dry. Moreover, under-watering may cause yellow leaves as well. You should always observe the top surface of the soil to decide if more water is required. If you directly use water coming from the faucet in the kitchen, the chlorination in the water may be absorbed into the plant and change the colour of leaves to yellow or brown.
Apart from incorrect amount of water, another reason for the yellow leaves might because they are burned by the sunlight. In this case, you should move the plant to another place without direct sunlight. Most household plants prefer partial shade and indirect sunlight location to grow happily. If you find the reason causing the leaves to be yellow, just get the problems fixed and the colour of your plants can come back quickly.
