It could be that it has too much sun, but it is likely that it is being overwatered. They need the soil to dry out pretty well, at least down to 2 or 3 inches, between waterings. Just don't let them dry out completely. They don't tolerate this.

They prefer indirect, but bright light, though they can handle small amounts of full sun.
