Hi all, bought this a few weeks ago and it started to droop after about a week. Thought it was too shady so I moved it nearer the doors, but not into any direct sun... The problem has got worse. I have been careful not to over water but now the leaves are showing signs of dying. Help!
Thank you...

Hello Guy, welcome to the forums.
I think that plant looks very big for the space it has, and would probably like it better in the ground in a shady spot outside. It does need to be in soil with good drainage, but will suffer terribly if left to dry out. This needs a constant water supply and feed throughout the growing period.
If it has to stay indoors it will need a very big pot to support it. It may be possible to cut it back a bit to give it more chance of survival.
It looks thirsty to me.

Mine do best in dappled sun. Those are twice the size of the ones in deep shade. They want good drainage too. A stuffed up rootball wont do at all.
