Wondering why the leaves of my growing choko are yellowing. Overwatering or under watering.? Maybe mineral deficiency.

Consider how fertile your soil is. Add some fertiliser (N). You should know if you are over watering. Big plants water each couple of days depending on the temp. Put some trace elements on - Bunnings $10.
