I planted an angel trumpet plant a month ago. Some of the leaves are turning yellow, altho it gets new leaves almost daily. What is causing the leaves to turn yellow & wither?

It is probably either a temporary lack of water or a lack of nitrogen fertilizer or even both. That plant likes bright light and morning sun but not direct afternoon sun. Try to keep the soil moist but not soggy. Fertilize the plant with a liquid plant food such as Miracle Gro several times (make applications a week apart) and it should improve and the leaf yellowing should stop. Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
