The leaves have started to yellow and I can't figure out the cause! I don't want to lose this one because I don't know how replaceable it is. Stem is hard as a rock so don't think it's rot ...

My sister is a pachypodium freak, and she has one of these, where is the yellow? Just the yellow on the bottom leaves? I really dont see anything to be concerned about
