Brown dry tips?
Cyndrical sanseveria all brown st tips! But the overall plant is healthy and new leaves have sprouted up. What's going on?
2ft to light, direct
4” pot without drainage
Last watered 2 weeks ago

I hate this on my cylindrica. Turns out, it's usually over watering or under watering and once you figure it out, the tips are already brown. The tough thing is, once they turn brown, that leaf stops growing. It'll still work the way it's supposed to work, but it's growth will be forever stunted. πŸ˜• So once you figure out the watering, you'll see NEW growth pop up beside those leaves! (:
@sarahsalith ugh that is frustrating!! I typically water on a schedule snd use a moisture meter. Im hoping that the fact that I've had a lot of new growth means what I've been doing lately works at least for the new ones.
I suppose maybe these could be cut and propagated?
@pettiteplants I'm sorry, I don't know. I've never tried to propagate one of these. I'm just grateful for the new growth.
@sarahsalith no worries!! Haha I think my frustration is at the plant πŸ˜‚
