    So I messed up. I put this plant in the bathroom, rather like likerally perched on the tub near me while I bathe. I moved the plant realizing it is getting overwatered from the back splash of the shower but now it is all pale & sad & lost lots of leaves & its new growth is coming out yellow.

    Yes I know - not gonna water it for awhile.


    Tried to overcompensate by putting it out in the sun on my fire escape which rendered the leafs even paler, got burnt I suppose.

    I moved it to a bigger pot & added dry soil. At this point - what to do? Which corner should I let this plant chill at? Bright one near a window or away from a draft & in the shade?

    Help me O wise ones, I've much to learn.

    Chill in the shade, I would think.
    Is there a drainage hole in the bottom of that pot? If not, there needs to be one, so either add a hole (almost an inch diameter) for excess water to exit the pot, or move the plant to a different pot.

    There are 12 holes I punctured for it.
