Q.What do I do wrong with my pennisetum rubrum
Why does my pennisetum rubrum have dry leaves at the bottom of it. The first year that I’ve done this I thought that my container was too small. This year I’ve put it in a bigger container but the leaves becomes dry at the bottom again. What do I do wrong??? I’ve put water in it every day???
Thanks and have a nice day.

It will naturally brown at the end of the season, and you can just trim those leaves off for a tidier appearance. If they are browning during the summer growth period, you may be overwatering. Purple fountain grass is drought tolerant and shouldn't need daily watering.
