@ShinyCoralreef Hiya! I think she's got root rot. Here are some solutions. Take the plant out of its pot and remove any excess soil. Get rid of this.
Once you’ve removed as much soil as possible, rinse the roots under lukewarm water
Using clean secateurs cut back and get rid of any rotten/dead/damaged roots
Thoroughly disinfect the pot before repotting your plant in fresh compost
Now that the root ball may be much smaller, using clean secateurs, prune back your plant’s leaves by one third to a half - so it doesn’t have to photosynthesise as much.
Water your plant lightly after repotting and remember, going forward only water when the top two inches of soil feel dry.
