Q.why are the tips of the leaves on my peace lily turning brown?

goodgrannycarol added on February 13, 2012 | Answered

Just the tips of the leaves turn brown on my peace lily and some of the leaves on a lady palm. Have never had this problem before. Both of these plants are indoor plants and in or near a north window. I live in northern Ohio.

Underwatering is most common reason for brown tips/edges in plants. Other possible causes of brown leaf tips could be dry air or too much direct light. Mist the foliage often and make sure it has bright, indirect light. Also, remove the affected leaves.
