Most common reason for yellow leaves is fertilizer burn, over watering, or under watering.

Do you know if you MAY have used the wrong amounts of fertilizer or water? Or added fertilizer to soil that already contained fertilizer?

If you're not sure, please post what and how much you are using so we can know and advise you the best we can.

Hello. I added fertilizer last Saturday. It was about 3 tsp. The fertilizer is as shown in the picture. The pot is about 5 gallon. However, I am suspecting perhaps it is over-watering, because it has been raining heavily almost daily, lately in the evenings, and my son usually waters the plant (it is his plant) in the mornings. And i have been checking on the soil, and it appeared to be rather wet.

Thanks alot for the help
