Yellowing Croton

Hi everyone,

As you can see in the photos, my croton normally has very deep green leaves with yellow spots. Over the past month or so, the top leaves began turning yellow. I thought this was normal, as crotons are known for changing colors. But the yellow leaves just don't feel or look very well! Plus, the yellowing seems to be moving downward instead of solely effecting the new growth.

I posted in another group a couple weeks back and they suggested I move it into a bigger pot, which I did (perhaps only an inch larger), but it hasn't slowed the yellowing progression.

The roots are fine! Soil is fine. I'm at a loss! Is it nutrient deficient? Does it just need more time to settle into its new space?

Any advice would be very much appreciated.
