It probably doesn't have enough nutrients. They are heavy root feeders and are probably lacking nutrients. They could also be adjusting to your water. Make sure they heavy nutrients!

Several thing could be happening.....planted too deep and the crown is covered by the substrate, poor nutrients, normal leaf die off or it could be normal emersed-submersed leaf change over....
