My yucca plant has leaves that are getting brown and dying. I have it in a window where it gets sunlight, or just light on cloudy days. How often should I water?

Yucca plants are very drought tolerant, like a cactus. They only need to be watered when they become overly dry and should be watered just enough to get the soil good and moist. Over watering usually results in yellowing of the leaves, so this shouldn't be the issue here. It could be due to low humidity and dry air or some type of nutrient deficiency, such as nitrogen.
