Q : Euphorbia leaves have turned yellow with patches of brown.

Watered thoroughly thinking that it needed more water. Now after 2-3 days more leaves have turned yellow and are wilting.

There were Aphids on the flowers and some leaves. So, removed the aphids with spray, still some are on in another plant, Achillea.

What is causing the Euphorbia leaves to turn yellow?
Is it lack of water or aphids or the Spray?

In most of California, Daisy, that Euphorbia is likely to need watering every day or two, especially in a terra cotta pot, like that. i would also double check to make sure that it hasn't been planted too deep.

Thanks Tugbrethil,

I checked, it isn't planted deep down.
What happens if planted too deep.

... And is there any hope for the plant, now.
Of course, will water everyday since the weather is getting heated up.
