A little fertizer goes a long way with this plant. I find that Australian Mystery like to be on the dry side. You may want to start to make cuttings off your semi-hard wood. Semi-hard is the two tone transitional color of the plants stems that aren't green and brown. Your plant sounds like it may be rotten.

Subject: any advice!!
I wonder if anyone can help. I have a decorative Regal called Australian
Mystery it's a second year plant and is starting to produce flowers in
abundance, but I just can't get the leaves to stay green, they just end up
mottled green and yellow. I have fed it, re-potted it and have given it some
seaweed with sequestered iron. I have done all this at different times and
not all at once, but still it will not stay green. I have looked for vine
weevil and other pests but it's clean. Is there anyone got any other advice.
Should I try seaweed on its own once a week as well as a normal feed?
