|I got this plant from a nursery a couple months ago and it was doing fine until just a few days ago. I keep it in my room near an east-facing window and I wait until the soil is dry to water it. Recently its leaves have started to droop and I've noticed some bottom leaves turning black. Not sure why this is happening or how to fix it. Any ideas?

|It would benefit from more light. In fact, the more direct indoor sunlight it gets, the better and more colorful it will be.
Allow the top half-inch of soil to dry before watering it thoroughly.
It is overall healthy and should thrive with more light and maybe a bit less water. Its normal for some older, lower leaves to age and die back as new leaves are added on top.
