Margaret,

My best assessment is that there is a soil moisture problem in those pots. Dry soil conditions or soggy wet can both damage roots and result in yellowing and spotty foliage. Provide the plant with moderately moist soil allowing it to dry out just a bit between waterings. If the original damage was not too severe it should recover and start putting out new growth soon.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
