Justicia carnea problem?

marko204August 13, 2013

I am not sure why my Justicia carnea plants have yellow leaves and continue to get new ones. new growth is good, looks dark and green, older growth looks like photos. pH is good, I have them in shady area I keep them moist, .... Can somebody please help me with this? I have 5 of them and they all look the exact same with this problem, i have been battling this for months ! the veins are not green,.. the leaves turn yellow until the point whee they have no green at all left and they fall off the plant...

Hi Mark! Probably staying too wet. What's going on at the base of the stems in the middle? Was it a peat pot stuck into a larger pot of different soil?

The garden clinic, house plant, or container forums would be better places to ask about this.
