Hello everyone,

I recently brought this plant home with me a couple days ago from a nursery. I changed the pot as roots were out growing its original pot. It looked fine and happy but this morning I checked and I see this. Does someone know what is going on with the color of the top leaf?
Thanks for the Help!

It didn't like your transplanting in a larger container. Remove some of the new soil off the old soil to let it dry a little if its wet. If its dry, then it needs to be watered well ,by letting a tiny bit of water to come out the bottom of the pot to make sure its watered well. Then let the top 1/2 inch dry before watering again.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

Is that the newest leaf that is discolored or an older, lower leaf?

The discoloration is only the oldest leaf which is actually the tallest one of the plant.

Let's hope it is just normal dieback of an older leaf as it aged. As long as new leaf growth remains healthy it should be okay.
