WE HAD OUR PLANT OUTSIDE, BUT THE HEAT WAS TURNING THE LEAVES YELLOW.
WE BROUGHT THE PLANT INDOORS, THE PLANT IS DEVELOPING NEW LEAVES , BUT THE BOTTOM LEAVES ARE STARTING TO TURN YELLOW TOO.
WHAT ARE WE DOING WRONG? WHAT CAN WE DO TO STOP THE LEAVES FROM TURNING COLOR?

Walter,

Watch the soil moisture as dry or soggy wet causes problems. Fertilize the plants with a soluble fertilizer solution such as Miracle Gro or Peters at the label rate. Repeat this monthly. Those plants should regain good vigor and color although the older leaves may not improve a lot, but there won't be more yellowing showing up.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
