I have a few Vinca plants in my balcony planted about a month ago. They have been blooming excellently well all through but recently the leaves have started to turn yellow. The pot has a drainage hole and the plant remains in full sun all through the day which is why i water them daily as i find a dry superficial layer of soil. Now when i see my plant turning yellow may be i am overwatering the plant?What can i do to revive it and turn green again?

Its hard to believe as you are in Dubai but I think you are overwatering. The soil needs to dry between waterings.

Overwatering was going to be my guess as well -- I've been growing vinca in my flowerboxes on the south side of my house for a couple of years now and the ones that do the best are under a roof overhang where they don't get rained on (and therefore get less water overall). I think if you slow down a bit with the water your plants will be fine.
