Nina, without seeing the plant I can just mention a few things I have found with my own plants here. Most of them do shed off the bottom leaves as they grow however if all of the leaves are turning yellow most likely you are experiencing a watering issue. Most typically yellow indicates too moist for too extented a period of time. Let it dry out almost to the point of drooping each time before watering again. If the tips are brown that indicates to much drying out. Hope you find some answers in this Bonniejo
This plant loves INDIRECT sunlight likes 65 to 75 degrees, if the tips brown or spot, too much light.  Feed liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks spring & summer, fall & winter feed monthly.  Use damp cloth to remove dust no shine spray for this plant leaves.  Every other year go up 1 size larger and replace soil
