I've recently planted a Mimosa, a plant with some very fond child hood memories. The plant is however under some stress and I'd like to know what can be done to solve the problem of yellowing leaves. Any ideas?

Gatu, was just looking through this forum and noticed that no one had responded to you. By adding this little note I will bring your question back to the top so that maybe someone who knows will see it. I also love mimosa - just planted some seeds for a Golden Mimosa Tree. Wish I could help you, but I just don't know enough about them to offer any reasonable suggestions.

My best guess is too little humidity--when you see leaves browing around the edges like this, that's a fairly common suspect. You might try misting the plant to keep the humidity a little higher and see if that helps.

See...I hoped bumping it would help! Good luck to your Mimosa!
