What's wrong with my plants?


Hi all!
I recently brought all my houseplants in due to the weather changing. Here's my problem, literally since they came in my white velvet wandering jew has started getting many yellowed leaves. My spider plant is also beginning to yellow on the tips. I only water them every couple weeks, there's no standing water near the roots. The wandering jew receives south facing sun and i have my spider plant where it can receive bright east light. I will attach a picture of the wandering jew leaf

I am just puzzled because this spent all of the spring and summer outside. Got rained on frequently, went through blistering heat. Never once had yellowed leaves or spots on them. They were thriving. That is until a couple weeks ago when I brought them in.

Change of environment. This happens to my plants when I relocate them.
Just snip off the yellow leafs and they will settle into their new spots.

Just give them the most sunlight you can find in your house, keep them out of draft's too. They should do just fine.

Definitely environment change, Nerd! Happens all the time. Oftentimes, plants grown outside and brought indoors will have a tantrum and drop all of their leaves. But then new ones will grow in their place.


Good luck, Nerd.
