🍂 Yellow Leaves

Yellow leaves aren’t always a reason to panic, and can be a normal part of a plant’s life cycle. Unless brand new leaves are turning yellow or all the leaves change color at once, it’s likely just your plant retiring old leaves.

If it seems like there’s a problem, the most likely cause of yellow leaves in Aglaonema 'Pink Splash' is underwatering. The leaves may also appear to be curling or drooping. Yellow leaves can less often be caused by overwatering, nutrient deficiencies, or pests.

Give your plant a good drink and it should perk back up and download Greg to make sure your plant never goes thirsty again!


🧐 Troubleshooting

When troubleshooting a sad-looking houseplant, start by checking for signs of distress in its leaves, such as yellowing, browning, or drooping, which can indicate overwatering or nutrient deficiencies.

Inspect the soil moisture; too dry or too wet soil can cause problems.

Ensure the plant is getting the right amount of light, as too much or too little can stress it.

Finally, consider environmental factors like temperature and humidity, and adjust care routines accordingly to revive your plant.

I love looking at it! I’ve read mixed reviews on the amount of light needed so we will see how this goes given we don’t get much direct light.

Supposed to be an easy one but mine has struggled with root rot fungus from the beginning. I’ve heard similar from many others. I really like it and I’m not giving up on it, but it’s a heartbreaker.

Ruth, my pink splash, is one of the newest additions to my plant family and she has been so responsive to my care through Greg! Got her at the start of December and she has a bloom and so many new leaves already!
