Hi! I bought this lady palm (i think that's what it is :O ) a couple months ago and recently have been noticing it's leaves are turning brown. It gets plenty of sunlight everyday and i water it with a full wine sized bottle every 2-3 days. Wondering if this is normal or if i should be concerned? It sits inside the plastic container it came in initially and then a prettier vase around it, and drainage is good. any help would be deeply appreciated!!

Rhapis Palms like lots of bright but only indirect sunlight. Make sure the sun's rays don't fall on it at any time during the day.

The soil must stay moist at all times, unlike many other Palm species. When you water, pour it in slowly over the entire surface until some trickles through the drain holes of the nursery pot. Avoid letting that pot sit in water, but always water thoroughly as soon as the surface of the soil feels almost dry.
