Hi, I recently bought this gorgeous plant a few weeks back, but the leaves have started drying out and it looks like it might be dying! I'm relay worried but not sure exactly what it needs, any advice would be much appreciated!?
There's one photo from a few weeks back and then a couple from today where it looks very unhappy...☹️

China Dolls are very fragile plants that rarely hold up for long indoors. Even minor lapses in watering will cause them to lose leaves in a hurry. They are also very prone to spider mites.

Yours looks badly dehydrated. The soil looks dry, so I suspect you have not been keeping the soil appropriately damp at all times.

Recovery is not too likely. You might consider pruning back most of the stems so there is little or no foliage remaining. Then improve the watering and see if healthy new growth emerges.
