Your plant is most likely root bound. It can adjust to the cooler temp and lower humidity you have been giving it. When the plant is root bound, it is suffocated. Check out the density of the soil. http://sarah-smith.suite101.com/recogni ... nt-a127389

The leaves of my plants brown like that when they get too hot. I use a misting system and that helps stop some of the browning.

your plant is ok, nothing to worry , the leaves look like that because the air is dry and probably direct light or increase temp , try to keep your plant at 20 celsius most of the time , within a humidity environement and with filtered light---have an idea:

thanks all for your replies!
I think you have answered the problem
recently i see a progressive increase of the temperature of the room where i have the plant. (here is starting the summer)
so i will change the room of the plant to a cool one, and i will mist it often. (i never mist before)

i hope to improve!

ps: I will build this humidity environment!..thanks for the links.

well as you can see before the plant has lost all her leaves and the stem is drying.
what can i do??

PLEASE HELP ME

the plant is getting worse every day.

I put the plant in a cooler place and the temperature swings is 14°C (54 F°) (NIGHT) and the max is about 23°C (73 F°) (DAY)
I recently change the soil with a new mix with more perlite, i made more holes in the bottom of the pot and put some rocks in the bottom so the air can get inside.
the humidity is constant at 60,65%, 1 CFL light of 22W cool white.

I watered the plant once after 2 weeks approx, but recently I see the time increase between watering (I think the plant is not taking the water),and the soil is wet but the plant seems to be drying.

I dont know what is the problem please help!!

ps: I always use distilled water.

Could be root bound. Have you repotted it since getting it? If the roots fill up the vase, it will suffocate itself, basically. Also, it will retain water, allowing disease to thrive.

Yes, I repotted 3 times since i have it, the last one 1 week ago.
I think may be the problem root bound. Cause in the last transplant I see the roots compacts, but not too much, is like their roots not expand arround the new space available in the new pot, they stay compact although they have a bigger pot.

what i must do?

When repotting:
-Knock out all dirt that is held by the roots
-Make a small base layer of soil
-Spread the roots out as you layer soil on top of the roots.
-Don't pack the soil down.

Other than that, you shouldn't see much growth in the roots. The plant will reach a sort of equilibrium between what is above the soil and what is below.

you need a humidity tent and temp at 20 celsius and right away!
the plant suffered a big shock to have her removed from the soil and not once...., i can not see her back only in the best conditions , try to emulate her climate (humidity tent, temp 20c, filtered plenty of light)
