For one thing you are watering too much. Let the soil dry out or once a week
in the winter time, more often in the summer.
The plant likes it to be warm 17 C in winter minimum, up to 30 C in summer.
Shady places, no full sunlight.
Keep away from warm or cold draft - away from radiators and possibly open
This is enough for a starter.
