Q.

Curling leaves and brown tips

Zone Tropical climate. I live in Singapore. | Anonymous added on October 29, 2016 | Answered

Some of my Rosemary leaves are curling downwards and leaves turning brown at the tip randomly. Should I be worrying? What it is that my Rosemary is lacking off? I placed my Rosemary at the balcony and as my apartment is facing north i am having trouble finding long hours of direct sunlight. My plant is about 6 inch height now. Would I be able trim it? If yes, how many inches is advisable for me to trim it back?

One of the biggest reasons for Rosemary plant failures is over watering.
Make sure you are allowing the soil to dry out before watering. I think the description sounds as if the plant is overwatered.

Try to provide as much sunlight as possible.
