This is likely a watering problem. Make sure that the plant stays consistently watered. Do not let it dry out. Water them until water comes out through the bottom (allow water coming out from the bottom to run out). The exact amount will vary depending on the size of the plant and its conditions.

If your plant has dried out completely, the soil can actually repel the water. In this case, try letting water run over it for 5-10 minutes to rehydrate.

the browning of leaves and dying is probably a sign that the plant has outgrown it's pot. check to see by taking out the plant from the pot. if the roots are compact and shaped sharply with the pot, and if you can see the roots on all sides of the root ball, then it needs a transplant. find a much larger pot or even better plant in the ground. before planting it, loosen the roots by breaking up the mass of roots. plant in garden with plenty of fresh water. trust me, if your plant had overgrown it's pot, it wil feel ten times better in the garden! happy planting!!:)
