Money Tree turning yellow?
1- Overwatering: Yellow and browning leaves are the first sign that root rot may be occurring. Your Money Tree prefers deep but infrequent watering to maintain consistent soil moisture. Provide enough water so that liquid flows from the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any excess water in the saucer and don't let it sit in water.
2-Light: Your Money Tree will grow best when placed in bright indirect sunlight. If placed in a very low light area, yellow leaves may develop. Avoid direct sunlight as it can burn the leaves.
It is normal if the plant has 1 or 2 yellow leaves particularly at the bottom of the plant. Your plant sheds its old leaves and sends energy to new growth.
