I ordered this plant and it was already in bad shape. Still trying to save it, I can't tell if I should give up or not. It's still drinking water but those leaves.

I have no experience with this one specifically but I’d be tempted to chop it all off to give it a chance to start fresh. And give it some light. Also please rename it!? 🤪 Meh doesn’t convey a survival vibe… 😢😅
Also have you checked the roots?…
Why did I not think of that! Will definitely check the roots. I was afraid to cut the leaves earlier but now since you said that it feels like I should.
Definitely recommend pruning. I had two and they like moist soil and bright light. It looks like it got scorched but not enough water. You can also help by placing a pebble tray under it to help!
Maybe it need to be reppoted!
I wouldn’t give up imo as long as there are roots…there is hope (I don’t know anything about this plant in fairness)
Are you able to have it outside somewhere? Where it gets natural morning light? Also does this plant have a drainage pot?
I would also remove all dead leaves. You don’t want the tree expending energy trying to revive them. You want them to use it on your current leaves and new growth.
Thank you everyone!
