yellow leaves on house plant
It sounds like you've got a pot with a combination of green plants in it. If one plant's leaves are yellowing, that means that plant isn't happy in the conditions that the others are enjoying. Yellowing leaves probably mean the plant has gotten too much or too little water, but during the winter months it can also be a result of low humidity and low light. There are a couple of steps you can take; 1-make sure the pot has good drainage holes and it never stands in a tray of water and 2-move the pot to a location with brighter light. Sometimes combination planters have mixed plants that just won't ever be happy living in the same water and light conditions, so the failing plant must be removed and replaced with something more compatible.
