My plant is losing its variegation, why is this happening?

This often happens when the plant is not given enough light. You can address this by moving the plant to a brighter location.

The leaves on my plant are turning yellow. What have I done wrong?

This is a result of overwatering which will cause rapidly yellowing leaves and growth issues. Remove the plant from the pot and inspect the roots, repot into clean dry soil and allow to settle for a few days before watering as usual, ensuring that the soil is allowed to dry between waterings.
