I have two geraniums in pots. One is doing great. The other is spinldly, leaves are small and clustered tightly together with many yellow leaves. They are both on drip watering. The one that is sickly is in more sun than the other. Any suggestions as to what is wrong with it and what should i do?

RE: Geranium

The sun should have nothing to do with it. Mine thrive in full sunlight on my south facing patio.

Yellow leaves usually indicate one of 3 things. It is not getting enough water. It is getting too much water or it needs fertilizer.

Since the other one is doing great I tend to think it's the water. Feel the soil in that planter. Stick your finger in all the way. Is it dry or too wet? You will have to adjust your drip so the plant gets the right amount of moisture.
