Plants tend to "speak to you" about their needs if you can learn the language. Yellowing can be from lack of fertilizer, but for many different other reasons as well. Too wet or too dry produces near identical yellowing symptoms. The soil or lack of and the poor drainage due to clays can make gardening a challenge unless you stick to local plants adapted or tolerant to the conditions. When I was in the tropical plant business in Florida decades ago, clients would often ask if "we talked to out plants as they looked so good". No we LISTEN to the plants and they tell us what they want and need.
Good luck. Try good fertilizer, but look at the drainage aspect as well. You can take a look here: http://listado.merca...in-fertilizante
Personally I like Peters Special 20-20-20 as a good basic for most everything. It works well sprayed on foliage besides adding to the ground. Plants absorb nutrients from their roots as well as their leaves.

It might be a natural process, it could be a infestation, or lack of nutrients.
I used to buy fertilizer at their old location, so here's hoping they still have it available, or could recommend something.
The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!
