Hi, Sthelens! Welcome to the forum! As for your plant, would it happen to be the "lucky bamboo"?
If so, how long has it been in water? If you could give us a few more details, it would shed some light on what the problem possibly could be.
Let us know! [wayey]

I don't know about the photo but...
as far as the bamboo plant goes, are you using soft water? Most indoor plants don't like the extra sodium. Use straight raw (tap) water. More detail would definitely help...

Thanks for the advice .It is a 3 tier lucky bamboo I have just been putting tap water in the bowl when sponge starts to dry up it is in a light but not direct sun place.Do you think it could be the central heating.If i leave it do you think it will go back green or have the leaves that have gone yellow died.Much appreciated [nutz]

Hi! I just PM'ed you about your plant. And realized I completely forgot to mention one thing...fertilizer. Perhaps a quarter to half strength feeding of a liquid plant food would give it some nutrients it may be lacking.
I mist mine with a quarter strength solution about every 2 weeks, and it gets the tap water mist at least once a day, along with my other dracaenas...they love it! [Love] [wayey]

Thanks Sheri & Kiki I will try planting it in soil.Do I just use compost?. I have trimmed all the yellow leaves off like you said it looks better all ready.I noticed some new green shoots coming up from the yellow ones.A couple of the stems have gone yellow half way down as well,hope it recoversI will give it some plant food. cheers [flower]
