I rescued this leopard lily from a garden centre about a year ago and it wasn't in great condition. However in a year it's never looked that happy - the leaves are droopy and there's always one that's turning yellow. But there is new growth.
I've tried it in two different rooms over the year - one is an east facing room which my peace lily is very happy in, and now I've moved it upstairs to the room above so still East facing but much brighter but neither seems to have helped.
Has anyone got any ideas?
Looking at the photo now compared to last year it actually looked much better then than now 🙁 the photo on the green wall is its current state.

When was it last repotted?

How do you decide when to water it and how much do you give it each time?

Last repotted about a year ago and water it about weekly at the moment. I always check the soil to make sure it's dried out enough.

How much of the original soil did you remove whe you repotted? Does the pot have a drain hole?

How do you check the soil for dryness? Dry on the surface? Dry deeper? If so how deep?

Does it get any direct sun falling on its leaves at any time during the day?
