I remember reading how to fix this on one of the forums but can't find it now.....
Yellowing leaves on sweet basil and peppers?
Too much water and cold and not enough drainage nor root room? Did you find out how to fix
Okay I have one for Y'all I have a volunteer moonflower with the yellowing on the leaves ,now there are several others nearby and they do not have the yellow leaves ,already did the epsom salts thing but haven't looked today and that may have worked it's magic by now
went out and looked it does seemed to have helped maybe wait another day and see what it looks like then
If the epsom helped, it is a nutrient uptake issue. Try a bit of nitrogenish stuff
Chelated iron & sulfur, then triple-13 a couple of weeks later.

This update on the yellowing leaves on a Moonflower plant ,the epsom salts and alfalfa pellets seems to have done the job it is 70% cured...
My basil leaves were yellowing until I planted them, and then they perked right up. My peppers were stunted, probably due to exposure to some cold temperatures, but they're happy to be in the ground now and are growing noticeably. I have no idea if any of that relates to your problem, though.
The epsom salts pretty well did the trick but checked the ph a couple of days ago found it to be a bit high so lowered it with some copperus that works ok but have to extra carefull..tomorrow i will pick up some Ironite when I have to go to McAlester It being unavailable in Talihina
