I am housesitting a friends house for some time and this plant is not doing well!

I have been watering it about two times a week. The leaves are turning yellow, drying up and falling off.

Do I water it too much or too little? It is standing in the window so it gets quite some sun.

Help appreciated!

My thought? The sun is moving, and now it's becoming too much. Try moving it to a less sunny spot, and see how it goes.

Not sure on the plant.
How dry does it get in between watering? Most plants like to get really dry, otherwise the roots stay too wet and start to rot. But on the other hand, dehydrating the root system can also kill plants. It's a balancing thing, your friend should have given you better instructions!
