Hi,

Recently, my plant is not feeling well. The foliage is turning yellow, and it looks unhealthy.
I have placed it near the window (facing east). I live in Amsterdam, so the winter is fairly cold. During the night, the room temperature can go down to 15 ( I guess).
Any help or ideas is highly appreciated. Please see the images attached.

Thanks,
Moh.

@Chuck Any ideas? thanks.
I am not all that knowledgeable about house plants but my guess is the problem is water related. Either too much or too little. And IMO the size of the pot in relation to the size of the plant is questionable also.

I’ve been on my indoor plant journey now for about a year. I have learned so much this year especially about watering (I’m still learning though haha). Plants have a mind of their own. I tried following watering instructions I’d find online for each plant but honestly I learned to just water as they seem to need it. I have had many overwatering issues because they seem to not like much water in my house. I could seriously go a month or two and they’ll all be fine. And also, they don’t like too much water. I’ve bought a moisture meter recently hoping it’ll help but I’ve seemed to figure out most of my plants.

My Monstera is one of the tricky ones, but I think I’ve been overwatering. Since I’ve stopped it’s done well. I think what might help is maybe repotting yours into a bigger pot/container. Make sure it’s draining well and never sitting in water. Sometimes it’s just trial and error unfortunately. Best of luck!
