I have kept this plant of mine in my bathroom for more than half a year, and things were fine until recently. I noticed that one or two of the leaves had turned yellow. So to prevent further spreading, i got them plucked off. But still more leaves turns yellow.
What does it means?? I thought that ethene was behind this (well, that's what i suspect only) and there might be something else behind this. Can someone explain this??
Did you change the soil anytime? Perhaps the plant may have some nutrient deficiency... here's a list of nutrients and the symptoms of their deficiency:
-Symptoms: Older leaves, generally at the bottom of the plant, will yellow. Remaining foliage is often light green. Stems may also yellow and may become spindly. Growth slows.
-Sources: Any compound containing the words: 'nitrate', 'ammonium' or 'urea'. Also manure.
- Symptoms: Slow growth and leaves turn pale yellow, sometimes just on the outer edges. New growth may be yellow with dark spots.
-Sources: Compounds containing the word 'magnesium', such as Epson Salts.
-Symptoms: New growth turns pale yellow, older growth stays green. Stunts growth.
-Sources: Compounds containing the word 'sulfate'.
-Symptoms: Growth slows. Younger leaves turn pale yellow, often starting between veins. May develop dark or dead spots. Leaves, shoots and fruit diminished in size. Failure to bloom.
-Sources: Compounds containing the words 'manganese' or 'manganous'
-Symptoms: Older leaves yellow, remaining foliage turns light green. Leaves can become narrow and distorted.
-Sources: Compounds containing the words 'molybdate' or 'molybdic'.
-Symptoms: Yellowing between veins of new growth. Terminal (end) leaves may form a rosette.
-Sources: Compounds containing the word 'zinc'.

Hope that you can save your plant
There aren't simple solutions but, if you're luck, there are simple answers.
well, they call it money plant. That's what i know. I planted it in what they called 'crystal soil', some kind of jelly-like substance. So basically what i just do is to add water once in a while.
But i also did change the soil once in a blue moon. It's been fine for so long and the leaves started to turn yellow one by one from bottom up. But the stem is still fine tho.
I changed the artificial soil again last week and found that the soil seemed to stick around throughout the whole root. I was shock and cleaned up the roots.
There isn't any problems with light. I have checked that out. Only the content of the soil that i wasn't clear with.
BTW, thanks for your kindness of helping.
