I have a columbine and the leaves at the bottom are light green while the rest are dark green. I water it every day (somtimes i forget). It is in a place were it gets at lest 6 hours of sun. Do you know what's wrong.

It's normal for the oldest leaves (those lowest on the plant) to age first and die. The light green color is just part of the aging process. Watering everyday might be excessive, though, and too much water can cause light green and then yellow leaves. Instead of watering everyday, try soaking the soil deeply twice a week. Enjoy!
