Does the pot have a drain hole in the bottom? If not, I would say it is over watered and the roots are suffocating. I don’t know the name of the plant.

Appears to be a sad calla lily, that looks overwatered. I would repot with fresh soil in a different pot with better drainage.

Welcome to the forum @IanB I reckon that may be one of these....

a peace lily :unsure:

I agree with the others, and would say the poor thing is drowning. Best to get it out of the pot, cut off all the horrid bits, take off all the old compost, and stick what's left in a nice new pot with a crock in the bottom, a bit of grit, and some fresh compost ....we like ''Jack's Magic '' compost.
As long as you don't overwater it again, it should be an easy plant to look after indoors. It really isn't all that fussy. Good luck.

It’s a calla lily but don’t change the soil, change your watering practices. Changing the soil does more damage to the roots which are damaged enough. Never repot a struggling plant, unless there is something very wrong with the soil. Overwatering isn’t a soil problem it’s a water problem.
