It's odd that only one of your plants is affected. Could that one be getting more water than the others? Usually water stress/poor soil drainage will show up as yellowing foliage. Try feeding with foliar fertilizer to help green it up and be sure to check the soil moisture level down near the roots. If the soil remains too wet it can drive out oxygen and essentially suffocate the roots of your plant. Try poking a stick into the soil both to check the soil moisture but also to help it drain a little faster. Hope this does the trick!
