No, a heater vent will dry it out faster than anything. They need a lot of humidity, so add a pebble tray below your plant.

Some browning is normal at the bottom of the tree. If the browning is occurring higher up, check for over or underwatering, or needing more humidity. The soil should be allowed to dry out between waterings.
