Hey, I m new on here and I just want to learn more about my plants. I struggle with wilting leaves and I thought it was watering. In my last post I learned that it can also be because of the light. Is this also because of the light?

hey @AnaMaria!

The reason you may be seeing the leaves dry up is because of direct sunlight. these guys prefer a bright spot without sunlight on its leaves.

you can’t bring these leaves back so if you want to cut them then that is perfectly ok!

Wish you the best of luck!
Does your pot still have no drainage? Because that is q biiigggg factor in what could be wrong. Always best to have draining holes or to keep in the dinky growers pot and you can slip that in and out of the pretty pots when watering comings. These plants do best in indirect light and it says you do direct sun so it could be from that.
Double check the soil (especially closer to the bottom) to see if it's just sitting in saturated soil bc that's no good and can cause fungal infections and rot. If it's not saturated I would go ahead and scoot it away from the direct light so it's gets lots of bright indirect light (if the plant can see the sun at any point or direction then it's getting direct light) also they love humidity so maybe try spritzing a little with room temp water 1 or 2 times a week depending on how hot and dry your area is. @AnaMaria
