The leaves on my very old aspidistra plant are turning brown. Even the new leaves turn brown quickly. Why is this?

Brown leaves on this plant can be a result of overwatering or underwatering (check the soil with your finger to make sure it's dry before you water), salt buildup in the soil, or over-fertilization. Please see these articles for help:
