Akebia quinata, leaves are turning brown very quickly, why?
Akebia quinata. The leaves of my plant are browning quickly, it doesn't grow very much, if at all. I feel it is dying. I bought it a month ago. I don't know what to do to make it well. The plant is about two feet tall. It is indoor in a pot with a "sunlight" bulb, not far from a window. I water it every week, and soil is a mix of earth and sand. Can you tell me why the leaves are brown? Can you help me save my plant? Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thank you :)

I assume you purchased your plant from a garden center or greenhouse. Moving it to a lower light situation may have stressed the plant.
Also watering can be a cause of the leaves drying up. Make sure the soil dries slightly between watering. The container should be well draining.
Even though you do have additional light from a grow light, this plant may be best in an outdoor location.
