It is probably overwatered. When plants are in a big pot it is easy to overwater because there is so much soil that stays wet. Try replacing the soil and repotting in a smaller pot if one is available. If not, replace soil and only water when the soil is dry and do not saturate the whole container.

If it is inside, it will do better outside.
