If the leaves turn black and curl up, the plant is probably being kept too cold. Make sure it isn’t too close to a window. It prefers warm temps like between 65 and 75 degrees.
If the leaves stay green but curl up, that is a sign of too little light. Try and keep the plant within 5 feet of a window that provides at least 4 hours of direct sunlight a day for best results.
