This summer I have planted 4 Roridula plants into one big tray
My plants were slowing donw in growth and roots were coming outside the original growing containers, so I decide to move them to a bigger container.
they have been growing nicely since then, but now one is showing strange things.
It is becoming yellow in the tips, whereas the other three plants are nice green.
also more leaves are withering on the base of the stems.

Pictures are in my gallery:

maybe difficult to see but only the first plant (on the right) has this issue.
all are planted in the same way.

any yellowing usually means they are about to die. This time of year, you have to be very careful to keep the humidity low. I moved my Roridula indoors about two weeks ago, a damp greenhouse is certain death over winter.
