I have this tiny plant on my washroom cabinet. I got it in July and it's been doing ok. I water it twice a week with very little water.

Today I found that one of the leaves is yellowing.

Does it need more water?

When you water, allow a little water to drain out the bottom of the pot. Then wait for the top of the soil to dry before watering again. You are doing a good job taking care of your plant.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

It may need more light. How far is it from the nearest window? Can you show that in a photo?

It's in the bathroom with no windows. It gets direct sunlight through the door in the mornings but that's it.

I leave the light on for it when I leave to work. I'll take a picture when I get home.

It needs much more light. The pale green color at the base of the leaves, and the stretched out bases of the leaves, are both signs of insufficient light. Find a spot right in front of a sunny window. Water deeply then wait for the soil to go mostly dry at depth before watering again.

No need for a photo. It must have lots of natural sunlight to do well.
