is my yucca plant dying?
Had my yucca plant for about a year, sits in a large pot in a bay window, which has a blind so it doesn't get full sunlight. I give it a little bit of water most days, use a 500ml bottle, and that lasts about 2 or 3 weeks between refills. Looked great until a couple of weeks ago when some of the lower leaves started withering and going yellow-brown, although most of the upper leaves still look ok at the moment. Is this normal or should I be doing something different? And if it is dying, is there anything I can do to save it?

There are several things that can cause this. When you describe your watering habits, I am leaning towards root rot. Yuccas like their soil a a little dry, so if you have been watering without checking the soil, it is possible it got too much water and has root rot.
