My wife has had African violets in pots in the house for years. She tries to keep them watered -- but not overwatered -- and fertilized, and with enough sun.

One plant has developed a problem, however: It blooms, looks healthy, etc., but several leaves around the outer edge are all turning YELLOW, almost WHITE. They do not look brown or shriveling or dead; they just seem to look anemic.

Cause? Solution?

Thanks!
