Are you growing it inside or outside? Please post a photo that shows the entire plant and its pot.

How do you decide when to water it and how much do you give it?

Is your tap water hard?

How much of the original soil did you remove when you repotted it? What kind of new soil did you use?

Is your tap water hard - high in mineral content?

How dry does the soil get just before you water and how much do you then give it?

I apologize for all the questions but the symptoms are generic and can be caused by root damage, soil quality, water quality, or improper watering.

I am not remove original soil, cause it was in very small pot. The soil I used is the garden soil with drainage on the bottom. For water hardness I is not very hard, but and not very soft. The first 2 months it growing normal, but then the new leafs are white.

I suspect part of the problem is the quality of the soil. It should be planted in a soilless, peat-based potting mix not outside garden soil.

You are not giving it nearly enough water. Allow no more than the top 2 cm of soil to get dry before giving it enough water that some runs through the drain holes and into the saucer.
