Are they in full sun? While they can be grown in sun, these plants prefer partial shade and moist soil conditions. Even though you're watering, the area may not be absorbing it due to evaporation. When the foliage turns brown like this, the plant is often trying to protect itself by going into early dormancy to conserve water. You may want to consider moving them to another, more suitable location.
