Plant Turning yellow and Dying

I am not sure what kind of plant this is but I have had it for about 4 years and now it’s starting to die. Last year I repotted it and I’m not sure if its maybe getting too much water in the new pot or not so I stopped watering it for about 2 weeks but it was still dying. Can you help?

Hi Crystal,

Your plant is a green Prayer Plant (Maranta). Is the soil wet or dry? Does the new pot have drip holes in the bottom? What size is the pot? How often do you feed the plant? Do you use water that has passed through a softener? When was the last time you changed the soil?

Houseplants often turn yellow from a nutrient deficiency or excess salt in the soil from too much fertilizer or water that has passed through a softener. They also turn yellow from transplant shock (moving to a larger pot). Chlorosis, which is a lack of iron in the soil can also cause yellow leaves. I will be back in touch as soon as you answer my questions.
