My Hypoestes sanguinolenta (polka-dot plant) is in my office. It was just given to me last week. Well, over the weekend it wilted and turned brown. Now the leaves are falling off. I'm not sure why. Could you help me and can it be recovered?

A polka dot plant requires consistently moist soil. If it doesn't get enough water, the leaves will wilt & turn brown. Also, the air in office environments can be on the dry side - you will want to occasionally mist your polka dot plant because they grow best in a humid environment.
