Spider Plant Leaf Tips Turn Brown


I always associate that with lack of humidity. You might try setting the plant on a saucer of stones or marbles, and keep water in the saucer. If you are hanging it, you might mist it regularly. (03/09/2010)

Spider Plant Leaf Tips Turn Brown

The plant is transpiring, you are over watering it and this will cause the tips of the leaves to brown. They can not get rid of all the water you are giving it. Ease up on the watering. Spider plants love to be plant bound, this forces more shoots and babies to come out. All for now. (03/12/2010)
