Have you spotted yellow leaves on your plants?
It may not be something to worry about! As a plant gets older, so do the leaves. Every now and again, your plant will drop one of the oldest leaves to sustain the newer growth. The yellowing is usually very even and always one of the oldest leaves, especially if the leaf is over a year old for certain types of plants!

Below are some examples just looking amongst most of my plants. They're still happy and healthy, just making way for new growth πŸ₯°

Of course, if you are unsure if it is an old leaf or something else, the Greg community is amazing at helping out! #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PLANTMAFIA #yellowleaves

And thanks to @RJG, we shall make this hashtag a thing #FoliageGirlFacts 😊
This is exactly what happened with my monstera, she had a couple old leaves turn yellow. I just removed them and she was fine :))
@dylan1stokes yep! The leaves have served their purpose and retire when they're ready πŸ™‚ circle of life
Great informative post Sarah!
Great post! I came into the office after a long weekend to find a yellow leaf on my pothos - not worried about it though! Patience is such an important part of plant care
Cool! I thought unless it was bottom leaves it was a problem sign of overwatering or bad water.
Great info .
@RJG thank you very much Drew! ☺️
@foliagegirl We gotta come up w a hashtag for your explainers. #FoliageGirlFacts or something 🀩
Super interesting!! Thanks for posting this
@Curry no worries at all! This community is amazing at helping too 🀍
@RJG haha, I like this hashtag! ☺️
Are you supposed to cut them or let them fall off their own?
@SabelleTo hello! You can wait until they are completely yellow and they will easily come off when pulled or you can wait for them to fall off πŸ™‚
