I'm a bit late to answer this, but I have a different solution to offer. Your plant is obviously potted in a bag which has no drainage holes at the base; remove it from there and plant into a pot which has drainage holes. If the plant is in a pot but just inside the bag, remove it from the bag; its important from a watering point of view that water can drain away freely at the base of the pot, not be trapped inside an outer container. The fact it's in a bag with no drainage holes is why you were given the advice to water sparingly, simply because any excess water is unable to drain way, and if the plant is sitting in water, root rot may occur.
When it's in a pot with drainage holes, water in well and ongoing water as soon as the surface feels a little dry to the touch - water thoroughly and allow the excess to drain away from the base before standing the pot back into any outer container. Your plant has been suffering from insufficient water, and moving to a pot and watering sufficiently will solve the problems.
The only other thing is I can see small black specks or deposits on the backs of some of the leaves - it's impossible to see what they are, but just check they're not aphids or other insects - if they are, you will need to spray the plant to get rid of them.
