Question: Pitosforo and yellow leaves above

I have 2 Great Pitosfori on my terrace for 4 years. They have grown up. They grow every year. Currently, however, they have had yellow leaves "above" for 1 month. If I'm not mistaken they are old leaves. It is also true that it rained a lot and so is it perhaps for this reason ?? Or should I give him chelated iron? fertilized with "Stallatico" and "ONE" liquid fertilizer. What else can you tell me ??
When you can change the vase that is now small (it is 70 cm in diameter) or can I better cut the old one and reduce the volume of the roots and back in one of the same diameter ?? I have space, but this solution would be the most suitable for me. Grateful vs greetings

Answer: Pitosforo and yellow leaves above

Dear Giorgio,
the heavy rains of spring 2013 have also ruined plants that usually do not suffer much from humidity, especially when grown in pots; this happens because in the middle of the earth a pitosforo would be able to widen its roots a little to look deep into dry land, or not soaked with water, something which obviously cannot be done in pots. I do not think this is a problem of iron deficiency: the leaves of the plants placed in a soil from which they cannot get enough iron, usually they take on a general yellowed appearance, that is all the leaves of the plant begin to discolor, become of a increasingly tenuous green. This scenario is very different from what you describe, with some yellow leaves. Another reason for the yellow leaves could be an excess of fertilizer in the soil, or the presence of insects that are eating the roots. To solve the problem related to excessive amounts of water, the warmer and drier climate, and less watering, they go to shelter the question. In the case instead of excess fertilizer or insects, repotting is certainly what is needed, in addition to the fact that the repotting would also eliminate any fungal diseases favored by excess water. The best time to repot your plants is the end of winter, or autumn, but if you think it is necessary to repot now, you can do it without problems, also because the period of greatest vegetative development is over, and your flat has already blossomed and fructified. You can also think of slightly pruning the roots, but without overdoing it, and this pruning should also be followed by the pruning of part of the foliage, so as to balance the part of leaves and the part of roots of your pitosfores. Facial that repotting, also replace all the earth contained in the pots with top quality soil, well drained and rich, in order to stimulate a rapid recovery of the plants after repotting. This operation is very similar to the pruning practiced by the bonsaistas, and if it is repeated every year it will help you to keep your pitosfori a little smaller, so as to be better able to manage them in pots. Your shrubs would need progressively larger pots, but I realize that it is not always possible to place very large containers on the terrace, which in addition to preventing passage, also tend to become very heavy, placing too much weight on the structure.
