Paradise bird plant dying? Looking for advice

I have the paradise bird plant. Before the leaves would stand straighter upwards, but now the plant leaves look sad and droopy.

I kill almost every plant I touch and inherited this when I bought the house. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to care for this plant? I don't know if I'm supposed to water every day and whether it makes more sense to let the hose slow drip for a while near the root of the plant (the plant's base covers a pretty wide surface area and if I leave the hose in one place I'm concerned it won't get to the rest of the roots), or if it makes more sense to attach the spray to hose and just spray everywhere (not sure how often I should be watering).

Any tips would be hugely appreciated - thank you!
