My sister gave me plant about a year ago when she moved to England. She'd gotten it from a friend and wasn't exactly sure what it is. I assumed it was some sort of palm, so I put it in the corner by the windows so it could get light. Since I've had it, it has been a slow process of leaves browning and falling off - a problem she didn't have. I water it every Saturday morning using the same bowl/amount of water she used. I try and mist it with water a few times a week and even picked up a humidifier that runs near it but neither of those things seem to help.
I live in a loft and eastern side of my unit is almost all windows. Because of the windows it can get quite warm in the place especially in the mornings during the summer when the sun coming up. I don't know if its too warm in the place for the plant at times or if it is getting too much sun or what? I'm not sure if it will help or not but I included the knight for scale - 5'3" at the top of the feather looking thing on the helmet.
Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
