I would understand that might be if old leaves yellow, but there are some young ones too...
The older leaves that were on the plant when acquired will often die off over a few weeks. It is the new growth emerging from the centre of the crown that is key. If this appears green (may be pale green or darker, depending upon nutrients) and remains so, then all is probably fine. But if these new leaves begin yellowing or getting brown patches or holes or turning whitish with dark green veins--all these are symptoms of nutrient deficiences (or sometimes excess of some nutrient which causes deficiency of another).
