Hey guys I know this is a care free plant but it isn't going to well. I recently just reported it and prior to this the plant did look healthy. It's been about 6 weeks now and it's already starting to look like this. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? It gets about 3 hours of direct sun each day.

That looks like mechanical damage to me. Do you have a cat?

Haha yes it is a bit mechanically damaged but I'm more curious as why the bottom leaves are dying. The plant has been mechanically damaged for months.

It looks really healthy to me. Its natural for the old leaves to die as new ones grow. As long as the old leaves are drying up, not rotting, and its growing new helthy leaves, you are good. Did you notice the little offset doesn't have crispy bottom leaves?
