What Causes Houseplant Leaves To Turn Brown And Dry Up

Ask the Expert:

what cause the end of my house plant leaves to turn brown and dry up ? Nicole

Flower Shop Network Plant Expert Reply:

The number one cause of browning leaves on any plant is a water issue.  It could be getting too or too little water.  Depending on the houseplant you may need to keep the soil very moist, but not soggy.  Sometimes this is hard to determine.  Another cause could be too much sunlight. If the plant is close to a window the sun could be burning the leaves.  Some insects can cause browning but it usually presents itself in the middle of the leaves.

I recommend checking the soil moisture. Make sure the soil is moist and that the container can drain excess water.  Check the position of the plant. Move it out of the direct line of the window. Look for signs of insects. Check the backs of the leaves for signs of insects.

Once you determine which issue you have, you can correct it and the plant should make a full recovery.

Dundalk Florists hope this plant care questions helps others with brown tips on their houseplants.
