Answer: Hi John, it is normal for some of the older leaves to yellow off as the plant ages, but in a pot you will run out of nutrients much quicker and if 25% of older leaves are yellowing then the plant is very hungry for a good feed. Suggest a soluble product such as Aquasol every two weeks and a handful of dynamic lifter pellets.
