When I first got the plant it was super root bound in the container I brought it home in. Then it got root rot. I trimmed the bad leaves and replaced all the soil with new soil which saved her and she has grown new leaves quickly.
Watch for mushy leaves and trim them quickly or they spread to the rest of the plant!
