Some of Stella’s leaves are brown and crispy on the edges. I think my cat tried to eat Stella. I’ve been spraying Stella with cat-repellant but is there anything else I should be doing about the crispy leaves?

This happened to mine for awhile too. I increased the humidity and it’s finally growing.
Ooooof. These guys are notoriously finicky. I’d try upping your humidity. Maybe add a humidity try or put it near a humidifier. These guys can also be picky about water. They prefer distilled, but I water mine with tap water that has either been boiled or set out overnight to let the chlorine evaporate out. They like lots of light, but NO direct light. Oh, they are so darn picky. My Triostar is my most difficult plant. We’ve gone rounds 🥊 😂
Thanks both of you! I’ll increase the humidity. I think a lot is due to my cat trying to chew on her so hopefully with that stopping she’ll do a bit better. She does get new leaves on occasion!
