Oh wow! This looks in such good condition! My tips of mine are going brown... I don’t suppose you know why that is and if it can come back from it? I’m an absolute newbie to gardening and anything plant related ☺️

@Sand666 its all down to what you water with always best to use rain water and only fertilize once with a slow release fertilizer at the begining or the growing season make sure you don't over water, it wants more while it's growing and can be left to get more dry but not bone dry over winter. I wouldn't worry to much about brown tips plants don't look perfect all the time it could just be the natural aging of the leaf. If your confident your getting everything else right.

@Sand666 oh and never use cold water to water any house plants. An a mist is always good or a pebble tray to add humidity. I have so many now I don't tend to need to mist 😂 but I still do 😁
