I've had my bird plum for about a month now, and its leaves started turning yellow. Most of them are fully orange-yellowish now. What is this caused by? can it be a lack of fertilizer? I couldn't fertilize it yet, because I couldn't find any online stores. Thankfully I found one, and just ordered 500g of biogold. I also noticed some white hair on the roots that stick out of the ground. Is this a sign of root rot?
(Can attach pics if needed)

If youwant to know what you are doing wrong, you really need to tell us what you are doing. And, yes a picture is necessary.

I've gone on vacation for a 2 weeks, and until then one of my friends took care of my spekboom and my bird plum unfortunately he misunderstood and water my plum every week instead of every day.
After I've came back I started watering it every day. I watered it too much one day and currently I'm letting the soil get a bit dry, then water it everytime the soil gets slightly dry.
