China doll indoor plant

I have a China doll plant inside, heaps of light. What does it mean when the leaves dry up only in some parts of the plant? Is it overwatering or not enough?

Dried up leaves can be the result of overwatering, underwatering, or other problems:

The best way to tell if you are over- or underwatering is to check the soil each time you water. Make sure the soil right at the top becomes dry or almost dry before you water, but don't let it stay dry for days. Also see these articles:
