    One is getting better, it's near the front door, the other is about 2 meters away, it's leaves are cracking too. Might move them closer

    My parents own a nursery and my Mother always used to tell people the following -

    Give your plants a shower every now and then (literally put them in the shower and turn it on), it gets the dust off and lets them 'breath' a bit better.

    Rotate plants in and outside if you can, lots of plants will start to stagnate after a while inside and a little bit of 'outside' time will kick start them again.

    Repot the plant, even if it is the same size put, a bit of fresh potting mix, some slow release fertiliser and a new home gives them a bit of a kick up the behind.

    Also apart from the sun suggestion, your potting mix might have lost its ability to retain water, so even though you are watering it, it is kind of going straight through without getting to the plant.
