Hello, I'm wondering if someone could advise on this African violet. Almost all of the leaves in the center are curling up, and brown and dry at the edge.

The entire crown is very wobbly. I do water from the bottom, and I didn't think the morning light was too strong. Thank you!

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

It looks like your plant has stem rot. Try picking the whole plant up off the pot.

It's in a self watering pot. Usually 3/4", bottom of pot, once a week.

I can't lift the plant up completely, but it does wobble a lot.
