David,

That is not normal. The plant is likely either suffering from soggy wet soil in the container or more likely from dry spells which are causing root loss and loss of foliage. It may need to be in a larger container as small containers are more confining and result in the need for more frequent watering.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
