Well, it was beautiful when I bought it, but. . . .
the leaves (fronds?) die before they are full grown. Each one turns brown at the soil and "dies" upward untill the leaf falls off -- or I take it off. I've moved it to a cooler spot, over water it, underwater it and most of all mist its leaves at least twice a day. It keeps putting out budding leaves (cute) and the tarantula legs are growing, is there hope?
