    Hi Jacob, It depends on which leaves you are talking about. If it is the first two leaves your plant ever had, or the "cotyledons," then they are *supposed* to turn yellow. These first two leaves actually used to be the outside of the bean before you planted it. They contain all of the nutrients a young plant needs and help it survive until it can grow more leaves to photosynthesize. When the plant is old enough, and it's leaves are photosynthesizing, it does not need the cotyledons anymore so they turn yellow and drop off. If the *other* leaves are turning yellow, your plant may not be getting the proper light and water.
