@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom Yeah they need air conditioning especially when it's 125 degrees outside. This one is fast becoming my favorite.

@blasome Lost one bottom leaf a couple of days ago. Another one is fading. This new shoot is encouraging though.

Has it caught some direct sun? If not it's probably just an old one

As its a low leaf I wouldn't be worried

@slj Over a period of four weeks I have lost three leaves exactly the same way. All three were the lowest leaves one after the other. One new leaf grew during this time. Is this still normal?

I have lost two on mine too I would just water less maybe. I think mine may have been older as I have knew foliage too

@slj When you say water less do you mean water less often or water less in quantity? Because since I have this plant I have never watered it to the extent that water came out of the holes in the bottom. I just wait until the top 2 inches are completely dry and then water enough only to make the soil moist. Is it ok to do it this way?

Sounds perfect to me. I mean as the winter comes just less often
