Hey all! I've got this little fiddle who is pushing out new leaves all the time, but I noticed that the bottom leaves are yellowing. There have been 3 to fall completely off in the past 3 months, but it has still grown bigger since then! It has constant new growth! (Came from Lowes, got it as a gift, and came needing a little love- shriveled leaves, dark brown patches that might've been burns)

Now I'm noticing several of the lowest leaves are yellowing and I fear they'll go all the way too. It's in the same nursery pot it came in, I cut back on watering after the first couple yellow leaves, so I let the soil get at least half dry before watering again. Maybe every 8 days or so? That is where it has been living because it started here in quarantine but seemed happy so I never moved it, and that's a south window. (I'm in Colorado)

Is this okay? Normal? Should I change anything?

Any help is appreciated! Hopefully the photos are easy to see

It looks perfectly healthy and it's normal for old leaves to fall off when they get replaced with new growth. When you water soak it thoroughly so water comes out the bottom and let the top1" dry before you water again. Check it once a week for moisture level and water when it reaches that point.
