Yellowing leaves and stems

Asked March 22, 2019, 6:34 PM EDT

My plant is growing but leaves and stems are “losing” color. I did just get the plant about a month ago. Repotted it in a bigger pot. What am I doing wrong? Please help! Thank you!

Thank you for your question. I cannot immediately identify the species of plant, but I'm wondering if you have fertilized it since you got it? Plants' leaves become yellow through a variety of ailments (and insects), but the first thing to rule out is a lack of nitrogen, resulting in chlorosis. ( https://extension.unh.edu/blog/fertilizing-houseplants) Houseplants can also get too much or too little light, depending on the species . If you have the plant label, or recall what it is, you can do a web search for its specific needs.

Hope this is helpful. Good luck!
