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.

The banana plant leaves turn brown as the plant ages. Bananas generally have a very short life span, and several days.
remove the yellowed leaves. make sure you are not overwatering. before watering, check soil with finger. if top 2 cm are dry, then water. plants need less water in the winter …months as they are more dormant at this time. should only need watering 1-2 times a week. if soil is still moist may be over watering and soil may not have enough drainage.. if this is the case you may have to re pot the plant with new soil and add vermiculite to the new soil to add drainage. also have rocks in bottom of pot for additional drainage.. best pots for plants are plastic.caly pots are better sitied to succulents or cacti.
It's likely you are overwatering the plant. Trim off the brown leaves and repot. If there is standing water or excessive dampness in the bottom of the pot, where the roots res…ide, back off on watering for awhile, after dampening the new potting soil.
What is the best plant food for roses if the leaves are turning brown and they won't reproduce or have blooms?
It sounds as if your roses are suffering either from the wrong conditions or something in the soil affecting them. Feeding is not the answer until you sort the problem out and… the bushes are growing normally.
Prayer plants are a tropical plant and require more humidity than found in most homes. Some ways to overcome this include: keep your plant out of direct sunlight, keep… away from drafts (especially from forced-hot air furnaces), and increase the moisture in the air directly around your plant. One of the best ways to increase the local humidity around your plant is to have the pot on a tray of gravel and keep the gravel moist. Keep the base of the pot above the water-line of the gravel, and water your prayer plant (in a pot with drainage) regularly. You can mist the leaves with a sprayer, but the humidity from moist gravel is more consistent and will not leave water-spots on the leaves like tap water mist might. A good soil, like African violet soil, will help your prayer plant thrive, and a slow-release fertilizer, like Osmocote, is better than a liquid fertilizer.
* They got too hot and shrivelled and died * They had water on them and the sun caught them which burnt them * Overwatering * They have a disease
Yellow leaves usually indicates overwatering. Brown leaves indicate that the plant is not receiving enough water. The combination indicates that either your mint plant i…s confused or you are not consistently and/or correctly watering it, according to its need.
Leaves that turn brown usually signal a cultural problem. If an azalea is improperly planted, the roots struggle and that is reflected in the condition of the foliage. Over-wa…tering and under-watering both result in the leaves turning brown. The trick is diagnosing the cause. Was the azalea planted in a "pot bound" condition? Does the soil not drain well? Is the azalea planted under a downspout coming off the house? Do you have an automatic watering system which is delivering too much water? The rule is to water thoroughly, but not frequently. On the other side, are you in a drought situation where supplemental watering is called for?
it is dying stupid
Too much water
It will make fewer nutrients due to the decrease of chlorophyll. (Chlorophyll gathers light for photosynthesis)
Too much water/not enough...It's dying.
Because they are not getting enough nutrients or sunlight.
This is usually caused by dryness, specially in the air around the plant.
The plant could be dying. Even though bamboo is a strong plant, it does eventually die out. Another theory could be the plant might need water. Yo…u might not have fed it in a long time.
if it its leafs are turning brown then that probably means that it is sick or is not getting enough light.
