Improper watering can cause the leaves of cape jasmine to turn yellow. When the Cape jasmine overwatering, lead to the soil at the bottom of the water too much, cause plant root rot, affect plant root respiration and the ability of moisture absorption, slow the growth of plants, water shortage, the state of the plant will be a serious water shortage, cannot provide sufficient moisture leaf, leaf withered and yellow phenomenon.

The wrong light also causes Cape Jasmine's leaves to turn yellow. When we care for Cape Jasmine, if Cape jasmine is under a strong light environment for a long time, moisture evaporates faster in plant leaves, strong light can cause leaf burns. When plants grow in a dark environment for a long time, the blade can't be normal photosynthesis, chlorophyll content is low, lutein content accumulation is overmuch, cause yellow leaf.

If it is caused by too much watering, should stop watering in time, dig out the plant from the soil, clean up the soil on the root system of the plant, cut off the rotting root system, disinfect and dry it, and then plant it in the new soil. If it is caused by insufficient watering, the first yellow leaves will be cut off, and then water again, watering to water from the bottom of the basin outflow, keep the soil moist.

If it is caused by strong light, the plant will be moved to a ventilated half-shaded place in time, appropriate watering, culture for 3 ~ 5 days, and then it will be moved to the scattered light environment culture.

Long-term exposure to strong light will cause the leaves to turn yellow and fall.

The following are details of Cape Jasmine care for leaves falling.

When the light is too intense, Cape Jasmine leaves turn yellow and fall off. Under strong light for a long time, Cape Jasmine leaves are easy to be burned. When the temperature is too high, the water evaporation of leaves is accelerated, and the water supply of plant roots is insufficient, resulting in the failure of normal growth of plant leaves, yellowing and shedding.

When we care for Cape Jasmine, if we apply too much fertilizer, Cape Jasmine leaves turned yellow, dried up, and withered. Excessive fertilization would result in the accumulation of a large number of organic substances at the bottom of the soil, resulting in transpiration and heat phenomena, resulting in the burning of plant roots and affecting the normal growth and development of plants.

If the light is too strong and causes the leaves of Cape Jasmine to wither and turn yellow, it is necessary to move the Cape Jasmine to a ventilated and cool place in time, spray water on the leaves and surrounding of the plant to supplement water and cool down, cut off the withered leaves, wait for 2 ~ 3 days, and then place them in the place where the scattered light is used for culture.

If too much fertilization results in yellow leaves falling off in Cape Jasmine, you can irrigate the plant-soil with a lot of water to dilute the concentration of organic matter in the soil. You can also dig out the roots of the plant, pruning away the rotting roots, sterilize them, dry them, and plant them again.
