Besides over/under watering what else could cause yellow ...

Ever since I brought Ruby home, I have been struggling to help her get rid of her yellow spots on her leaves? I do believe I’m watering her correctly but the spotting persists. It primarily happens along leaf edges. Any advice would greatly be appreciated! #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #HappyPlants #SadPlant #GregGang #Syngonium #SyngoniumSquad #GreggersSupportingGreggers

@StarCoralcactus yellow leaves can often signal the plant is stressed so it can be the conditions eg heat, humidity, nutrients, water or external factors like pests. Its like getting a temperature or other sign in humans. So you are looking for more specific information for your plant, right?
@Seymour yes I am. I feel like everything’s right but something must be wrong. I’ll continue searching for making things right for Ruby. 😞
@StarCoralcactus Hi Jean, there is overall a consensus that the most likely cause is from overwatering, the most common indoor plant issue and so I am going to attach a guide that not only confirms that but also provides additional care information for future eh brown spots in the leaves. I think the watering guide in the article is consistent with the advice I would normally give in such cases with the attached diagram.
So maybe just check the soil and consider if it is a watering issue and treat accordingly. If Ruby doesn't improve then let us know. Hope this helped to answer your question. All the best πŸ‘πŸ™‚
P.S. I decided to add a further guide just in case it helps clarify any concerns or explains it better for you.
