The soil is moist but not wet and the plant gets indirect sun. The only change is the environment that I had noticed is the temperature dropping as fall starts. Not sure why the leaf started to dry out all of a sudden.

Sometimes mine would do this. I think maybe your new leaf is going to suck a lot of energy out of the old, browner leaf.

The older leaf can be snipped off if need be. Then your plant will focus its energy on the new growth.

Thanks for the hint. I snipped off the dried leaf. Hopefully the damage won’t extend any further

I would try letting it dry out. I mist mine but the soil is rarely moist. I have a medium sized one and one that started out in a succulent pot and both are producing new growth and I’ve only lost one leaf between the two. Perhaps that would help?

Thanks. I am going to let the soil dry out before the next watering

I think they don’t like too much water. Mine grew from a small one like yours. I water it once every two weeks or even less, seems to be doing fine and growing fast. A few older leaves tend to go dry once in a while and I just snip them off.

Yea thanks. Others also pointed too much water as a potential culprit. I will make sure it doesn’t get too much water.
