Erythrina herbacea no guessing

Those are young Erythrinas alright! I grow the hybrid E.herbacea X E.
crista-galli, also called E. 'bidwilli'. Great plant.

Are the roots of the yellowed plant trying to come out the bottom of the
pot? These guys like space.

Ummmm...... I'm really, really, silly.

I complained about no germination on my Erythrina, because I saw an exposed
red seed sitting in a pot full of assorted weeds.

A few moments ago I started poking around trying to find the other seeds so
that I could scarify & soak them.  One was rotten, so I tossed it.  The next
one was viable... and attached to a growing Erythrina plant!!!!  LOL.  At
least I think so.  Upon clearing away the weeds, I seem to have 3 Erythrina
seedlings happily growing.  Can you guys confirm?  Here's a pic...
(I know the plant in lower left is a Viola sororia seedling.)

Can you hazard any guess as to why the big one is yellowing?
