Leaves on Plant are dying

Asked November 22, 2016, 4:58 PM EST

A friend of mine was given this plant and has been watering it about every 2 weeks. It does have some new growth coming in but the leaves appear to be dying. See pictures.

It appears to be a dieffenbachia, browning leaves are sometimes caused by too much water other times too little. I could be another issue such as light, temperature. The link below should be helpful to your friend. http://gardeningsolutions.ifas.ufl.edu/plants/houseplants/dieffenbachia.html
