Chammy yellowing leaves

Post by SueW » Thu Jun 28, 2012 7:17 am

I bought a Chammy humilis a couple of weeks ago, good healthy plant with two 'babies' and flowers. I repotted it into a slightly larger pot using potting compost ; now a couple of the lower leaves are showing signs of yellowing. I make sure it doesn't dry out and gave it a tomato fertiliser feed last week. Anybody got any suggestions?

It's natural, the lower leaves die off as new ones appear. If you just repotted it go easy on the fertiliser for a few weeks though icon_thumright (My wife is Sue, a bit bizarre having a SueW on here !! :wink: )

Cheers, Gary. Being a newcomer to exotics and palms I wasn't sure what was going on.

It would have been very weird if my hubby was called Gary! :wink:
