Yellowing leaves - Dieffenbachia tri-color

13 years ago

Hi all,

I bought one of these plants about a month ago and it appears to be doing fine except for some of the leaves are yellowing and will probably drop off. I did some searches to see what I could find out and it sounds like the yellowing leaves could be normal or could be a sign of a problem (lack of enough light, lack of nitrogren, overwatering or underwatering, etc.)

How do I know if this leaf yellowing is normal or if I should be doing something else to it? It still appears to be in process of sprouting new leaves, but the leaves that are yellowing are not all necessarily at the bottom of the plant.

Should I go ahead and remove the yellow leaves or should I wait for them to drop off on their own?
