My sister bought this plant but forgot the name. I dont know what it is or how to take care of it. Does it need alot of light? How much do I water it? Leaves are turning brown:(

Maybe Peace Lily? The leaf veins are going the wrong direction for Aspidistra.

Thank you all for taking the time to help me. I first thought it was a Peace lilly or a Bird of Paradise but I was confused because there were no flowers. I looked up Peace lillies in shade they kind of look alike. Thanks again. They sold it in a rather tall pot do you think I will need to repot any time soon?

I would not re-pot now, late Spring is the best time of the year to do that. Peace lily's like bright light & slightly moist, not wet soil, the root mass could go down far into that pot, at least it has some drainage, I would use a chop stick to test how far the soil is moist before you water. Other members will have more advice for you.
