I live in zone 9 My first attempt was to grow a store bought 4 in plastic pot outdoor in partial shade . I water it once a week The leaves turn gray in three weeks and died. This is July in Northern California. Then I got a second one and put it indoor. It is under a skylight and I water it 2-3 times a week. The leaves are starting to turn gray again. Why are they dying?

In the meantime, this article will help you to understand the care requirements of the plant:
