I'm not seeing any sign of disease, which leads me to believe one or two things- That a lack of humidity could be the culprit, here, and/or lack of rootspace.

You can try misting on occasion. This may help, but since they have a taproot system, planting in a taller container will be the only way to mitigate root space issues.
