Why do the leaves of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) turn yellow?

The yellow leaves of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) may be due to the loss of nutrients.

Note: Reverse variegated spider plants has a scientific name, chlorophytum comosum variegatum.

Reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum), with fresh and elegant leaves.

It is one of the common family foliage flowers loved by people.

Let’s take a look at the solutions to the yellowing of leaves.

Cause analysis and treatment of yellow leaves of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum):

1. The loss of nutrients causes the leaves of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) to turn yellow.

When the various nutrient elements contained in the basin soil have been exhausted and the three elements of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium have not been supplemented in time, the plant will lack nutrients.

At this time, the leaves will appear yellow and thin.

Solution: at this time, we should change into fertile loam in time and pour alum fertilizer water.

2. Insufficient sunlight causes the leaves of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) to turn yellow (lack of light yellow) .

Although reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) are semi negative flowers, they also need to see astigmatism for at least four hours a day.

Otherwise, the chlorophyll will be reduced and the leaves will turn yellow.

Solution: we should take free time every day and put Chlorophytum in the sun for a few hours.

But we can’t expose it to too much sunlight.

3. Excessive fertilization of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) leads to yellowing of leaves.

Excessive fertilization will cause the leaves to turn yellow.

When the amount of fertilizer exceeds the needs of the plant, the leaves will be bright and uneven at first, and then the roots will rot and the leaves will be yellow.

Solution: at this time, we should stop fertilization and water more.

We can also turn the basin to clean the roots and replace them with new soil.

4. Reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) is short of fertilizer for a long time, resulting in yellow leaves.

Reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) are foliage plants that prefer fertilizers.

If there is insufficient fertilizer and water, Chlorophytum is easy to age, and its leaves will turn yellow, thus losing its ornamental value.

Solution: when applying fertilizer, we’d better apply organic fertilizer every 7 ~ 10 days.

For flower and leaf varieties such as Phnom Penh and Jinxin, we should apply less nitrogen fertilizer to avoid the phenomenon that the color of flower and leaf will fade or even disappear.

We should properly apply some organic fertilizer made of bone meal and eggshell retting.

When these organic fertilizers are fully fermented, we will take an appropriate amount of diluent and pour it every 10 ~ 15 days.

This can make the flowers and leaves of Chlorophytum beautiful and bright.

5. Rotten roots cause the leaves of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) to turn yellow.

If the basin soil remains stagnant for a long time, it will make it difficult for the root system to breathe, resulting in yellowing of leaves.

Solution: at this time, we should loosen the soil and control the moisture in time.

6. The leaves of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) turn yellow due to insufficient watering for a long time.

If the root of Chlorophytum loses water, the lower old leaves will turn yellow.

Solution: at this time, we should pour water and keep the basin soil warm and wet.

6. Diseases and insect pests cause the leaves of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) to turn yellow.

The disease of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) is generally caused by basin soil ponding and poor ventilation, resulting in root rot.

Solution: at this time, we should spray medicine in time.

Maintenance experience of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum):

1. The curing method of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) in winter.

We should move it indoors and water it every four days, and the water should be watered thoroughly.

We’d better choose to water at noon, and the water temperature should be consistent with the temperature.

This prevents the roots from freezing.

When we put it indoors, we should often clean the leaf surface.

Moreover, it is appropriate to keep the basin soil slightly wet in winter.

If the room temperature is kept at 15 ~ 20 ℃, Chlorophytum can grow normally.

2. Precautions:

What we should pay attention to is that no matter whether it is planted in soil or hydroponics, we should put the reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) in a place with scattered sunlight.

So that it can grow lush.

The best fertilizer to be applied is the oil withered and various animal feces after full fermentation.

We can’t use chemical fertilizer.

This is because the use of chemical fertilizer will make the soil worse and worse.

4. When watering, we should avoid pouring into the heart of the plant, otherwise it is easy to cause young leaves to rot.

5. When, we should keep the basin dry, because the basin soil is too wet, which will cause gray mold and rotten leaves.
