Tarpon Springs Florida
I bought this plant about 7 weeks ago. Repotted it in a generic soil. I've watered it maybe 4 times. It is in the room with a west and a south facing window. The leaves are turning brown. I brought it outside today to take out of pot and evaluate roots. The roots look great. They are neither wet or dry. Any advice on what this might be happening. I'm wondering if the room is a really dry room. Thanks for any help.

Is there any way you can plant that in your yard? Tarpon Springs is pretty warm...or have it as a patio plant? It will need a lot of humidity after you repot it to look its best.

The roots are concentrating at the bottom of the pot because the upper portion of the soil is getting too dry. That excessive dryness may also explain some of the leaf browning.
