Plant Age (Yellow Leaves)

Yellowing of older or "bottom" leaves may simply be a sign of age and the natural growth during the plant life cycle.

Check the new growth or "upper" leaves for signs of yellowing along the veins.  If there is no yellowing and the new growth appears healthy, it is very likely you have natural dying of older growth leaves and have nothing to fear. This process is essential for the plant to maintain it's strength as it shifts nutrient uptake to the new growth.

Relax!  But keep an eye on new growth leaves for any signs of discoloration.  Let those bottom leaves drop off and pop them into the compost pile! 

More to come.

  1. I was relieved when I read this article. Several of my plants have developed yellow leaves. Based on your description, I believe it is normal aging. I am new to hydroponics, and I don't want to lose my first crop.

  2. Thanks for explaining what's healthy when it comes to yellow leaves. I have several indoor plants that have been dropping leaves like crazy. I wasn't worried, but then it did seem like more than normal. I've checked now, though, and the yellow doesn't extend down the vine at all. I guess they just dropped a few more than normal this year.

  4. Unfortunately there are a lot of AIDS/Herpes denials on Herbal cures still out there. I did research on them after I was tested HIV/Herpes positive I was so worried am I going to die soon. I continue my search again on herbal remedy for Std, then I found lots of testimony on how Dr Itua Herbal Medicine Cured HIV/Aids, Herpes Virus,Copd, Hepatitis, Diabetes, On websites sharing their testimonies, which made much more sense to me. All the authors pronounce Dr Itua As a man with Good Heart, I pick interest in their testimonies and I contact him about my situation then he gave me procedure how it works, I proceed after one week he courier his Herbal Medicine to me and instruct me on how to drink it for two weeks to cure. I receive His Herbal Medicine so I drank it for two weeks as I was told then after 2 days I go for a test I found out I was cured from HIV/Aids & Herpes Virus, I pay homage to him 2 months ago to his country to celebrate with him on his African festival which he told me it usually happens every year. I know there are lots of (HIV)/Aids&Herpes Virus denials of Herbal Remedy movement the same few doctors and they represent a very small faction of the community. I could have died because I refused Natural Herbs Cures for so long, but luckily, by the grace of God I am alive to tell my story.
