I'm assuming these are grown as houseplants. That being said, browning of leaf tips is generally normal and will not harm either plant. This is oftentimes the result of fluoride found in water, which causes salt buildup in the soil. It usually helps to periodically leach plants by giving them a thorough watering to flush out excess salts. Be sure to allow the water to drain out and repeat as needed. It may also help to use distilled water or rainwater when irrigating plants.
