the leaves of my deffenbachia are getting yellowish and dried on the edges and I can't understand why (see photos). Could it be under watering? or over watering?
I tend to water it 1-2 a week and the plant is places in a bright spot with no direct sunlight.
thanks in advance

|Hello, thanks for the pictures
Overall, it looks like a healthy and properly potted plant. It may be unimportant minor effects.. but I am no Dieff expert.
How long have you had it?
Any changes recently? Is this a recent sudden seeming thing?
Others will post..
i'm pretty OK today, how are you? ;^)

thanks for your answer. I've had it for more than three years now and there haven't been any significant changes recently... maybe, since the season's getting warmer, I've been watering it a little more... could it be that it needs to be repotted? I've changed the pot and the soil 3 years ago...

| Your Dieffenbachia is fine and healthy. It's nearly impossible to avoid some minor leaf tipping particularly on older leaves. Yours definitely does not need to be repotted. Keep on doing what you have been doing so successfully.
