I bought a small areca palm 3 months ago.

My palm

I noticed some leaves are drying out and dying. The others is drying as well.

The leaves are drying and dying The surviving leaves are continuing dry out

My palm is indoors in the apartment's lobby. The temperature inside is around 20-25 degree Celsius. The palm is sitting in low sunlight spot. I water it every 4 or 5 days or even a week. I don't use fertilizer, feed or anything else.

Could anyone please help me to know what to do to save it?

It probably wants some more light and less watering. Put it some where near a window where it gets direct sunlight. Water it about once a week or whenever the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry to the touch.
