Q.Why are the tips of my Chinese evergreen plant turning brown?
Recently the tips and sides of the leaves are turning brown. A lot! It has done this on occasion in the past but not to this scale. I bought this plant at a big box store years ago and it has always thrived. I’ve loved it b/c it’s so low maintenance. I’m not sure if it’s a Chinese evergreen – someone told me that’s what it’s called. It has large variegated leaves of green and lighter green/ cream. I see this plant in airports a lot. It’s on my sun porch now and I recently moved it from a corner to a place where it gets more light.

It sounds like it may have a fungus. I would treat it with a fungicide and that should clear up the problem.
