    Sounds like they may not be getting enough water, fertilizer would not hurt either. I like the Miracle-Gro Spikes, easy peasy put it in and done.

    Not sure about not getting enough water, I water mine often and they still turn yellow. Maybe the spikes are needed.

    Please you are over watering or not enough water, please place in a sunny area and check soil if dry add water, and damp you are giving too much water allow to dry completely before giving more water.

    How much do you water your plants? Usually yellow leaves indicate over watering. Get a moisture meter (tester), they are about $5 - $6 at your nursery or hardware store. Mine has a chart on the package listing plants and what their moisture level should be. I killed my beautiful fern I had for four years by over watering because the top of the soil was dry but the deeper level was very wet. Good luck!

    I had a book on houseplants, and it seemed like the answer was either too much or too little water. How is one supposed to know? There are water gauges that you stick into the plant. You can also poke your finger in up to the first knuckle. If it feels damp, don't water. If you have a puddle in the saucer beneath the plant, dump the excess, and don't water for a week. Another problem for a local nursery. Your plants may need to be fed with a fertilizer meant just for that kind of plant, or they may need iron.
