Good Morning!
The six-foot corn plant on our patio has finally produced a bud that is beginning to open, but, now the leaves have turned a sick, yellow color. It's been sooo happy until now. Have I over/under-watered it? I gave it a shot of iron last summer and it got very green and lush. Does it need more iron? Help!

Hi Jilly,
I've found that when a potted plant has leaves that turn yellow it usually means that the plant is rootbound and needs to be repotted. Could this be your problem?

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

Holy cow! I never thought of that...I repotted it a year ago after it had grown for 10 years in only a gravel-filled pot, & it went crazy..Maybe it made massive roots in this time...I'll give it a go this weekend. Thanks, Newt!!!! [thumb]

BTW, the bloom isn't exactly pretty...kinda knarly, so if I interrupt the flowering process, it won't be a big loss [Big Grin]
