Causes of Yellowing Money Tree Leaves
The most common factors for yellowing money tree leaves are too much sunlight and wide range of temperature fluctuations throughout the day and/or over-watering. It is best to keep the plant away from direct sunlight and in a neutralÂ temperature location. Avoid placing the tree next to windows and air vents. Water should be applied to the soil around the trunk, not directly on the trunk to prevent rotting. It is best to give small amounts of water and allow the soil to almost dry before the next watering. If using a water/moisture meter, the reading should be kept between 1-3. Green food can also be used to help the plant reach its maximum green color and strength and is more effective when the leaves are just turning pale.
However, in some cases it is normal for some of the leaves to turn yellow due to natural aging of the plant. Simply cut the unwanted leaves off so that new foliage can replace it. Do not leave yellowing leaves on until they turn brown since it can spread decay to other parts of the plant.
