Houseplants with Brown Leaves Leaf tips may turn brown due to too little humidity. Other possible problems are too much or too little water, too much or too little light, or too much fertilizer for the plant in question; rule out some of these and try adjusting the others. ANSWER: Mainly this is due to overwatering. The excess moisture drips off the leave tips and they rot due to constantly being wet. Make sure all the plants that you water have proper ventilation and drainage trays. Small plants that are not in direct sunlight may only need to be lightly watered twice a month. Cut back on the amount that you give at any one time and maybe water smaller amounts, just more often. A plant will let you know when it needs water. The leaves will curl, brown and fall off. Do some research on the water amount needed by your specific plants and put a little note in the pot to what day of the week or month and how much water to give. Most indoor plants are loved literally to death. Dont forget to add an organic fertilizer such as composted cow manure to your house plants as well.
