Tips are turning brown

So I’ve only had my plant for a couple days, but I bought a light for it, and just one day later the tips of the leaves are turning brown.. the light is on for 6 hours. Any ideas for what I should do? Thank-You for all your help!
7ft to light, indirect
7” pot with drainage

Hi Trishβ€”my first thought is the plant is in shock from the new environment and needs time to adjust. Also, I use grow lights extensively for my plants and find they need to be on at least 12 hrsβ€”some plants need a little more. If possible, I suggest a brighter location or increasing grow light time. Happy growing! πŸͺ΄
Are you sure that light has all the light spectrum plants need to grow? If so, have you considered that maybe it needs more water than you realized?
I’d water it very early one time, wait 3 days and see if it looks any better. If so you’ve got to retune your watering schedule. If not, I’d put it in direct sunlight for like 30 mins a day and see if it looks any better. Sunlight burn seems to be slow, so I bet it would be fine.
