|Does anyone know why the leaves look like this? They are yellow so I assumed I was overwatering, but they are also dry and curling at the tips. The new growth leaves also don't have the pink lines, they're lightish green/white instead. The soil is currently damp from top down. Thank you!

|"Hold your hand over the soil, tip the plant out and take a look at the root system". It's one of two possibilities, too dry or too wet. Be gentle when you tip it over, and look or feel of the root ball. If its really wet then the drainage could be lacking. Let the soil dry longer between waterings. If its very dry then you need to water more frequently and water until you see a little water come out of the bottom of the pot. You have the answer in your hands. Good luck

| Don't expose or otherwise disturb the roots.
How dry does the soil get before you water? How much do you then give it?
How far is the nearest window?
