Q.Tropical plant dropping leaves

Zone edmonton | asialaraine added on July 11, 2016 | Answered

My tropical plant has been dropping leaves almost daily. They yellow, get limp and fall off. I’m confident I’m not over watering. I’m wondering if perhaps it needs a bigger pot. Had it for 2 years. This just started a couple months ago. What do you think?

I'm not sure what it is. I tried to post a picture but it wouldn't work.
It's got a thin stem/trunk that splits into three and long thin dark green leaves. It's about 1-1.5 feet tall.
It's been very rainy and not as warm here as usual.
It sits in from of the window to get enough light.
When I under watered the leaves were drying...so I upped it's water and it improved. Now the last couple months it's been losing leaves from all over the plant. As if it's not getting enough nutrients or something.
I tried upping water, no change and lessening water with no change

Yellowing leaves can indicate a watering issue; too much or too little.
It can also be incorrect environment, disease or pests.
