Hi! I have this same plant and I’ve found he’s very particular! I had him also 2 feet from the window and he crisped up. I would recommend moving him back to about 4-5 feet from the window if it gets bright direct sunlight. You could also move it to an Eastern window and it would do well! I also make sure I water it whenever the soil feels dry or he starts to droop even a little. A humidifier would also help a lot! Let me know if you have any questions πŸ’š
@BabeVila My room only has the one window that faces west πŸ˜” should i maybe put him further out of the light and keep him from the grow lamp as well and see if that helps? The soil still feels damp so it's not underwatered from what i can tell..
@lilprincegrows ahh western light is more intense than north or east, so I’m betting that’s the issue. Yes I would say to move him back from the window a bit. He shouldn’t need both a grow light and sunlight, that could be overkill, so I would recommend picking one or the other. If you pick the window, just move it back so it doesn’t get any direct hits from the sun, lol. If you put your face next to the plant and can see the sun, move the plant until you can’t. Then it will be in indirect light which is what we want! And good about the soil, I am willing to bet it’s just too much light. It will bounce back. Mine did just fine! I keep it 4.5 feet from a southern window and it’s happy as a clam now. πŸ’š
@BabeVila i've moved it so it gets slight indirect light from the grow lamp more so than the window (it's a cramped space so i don't have much shelf space wiggle room) but he's. shins the curtain so he's not getting any direct window light now! if that doesn't make it better soon ill maybe see about moving him to a different room where he'll thrive better πŸ₯Ή
@lilprincegrows it can get direct light from the grow light, they aren’t as potent as the sun. If that turns out not to work, then you can always switch him with one of the bigger pots near it which would shield him from getting direct rays! Let me know if you need any more help. I’m always happy to assist! πŸͺ΄πŸ’š
