Some of the tips of my Prayer Plant are getting brown tips…any ideas on why this is happening?
5ft to light, indirect
8” pot with drainage
Last watered 1 day ago
Beautiful plant!! I’ve found that in So CA the water is hard, lots of minerals, which causes some plants to get brown tips. I use filtered water. Some people use distilled water. Or rain water which in AZ is not going to happen year round πŸ˜†. Also let your water sit out for a few hours before using it. That allows gases like chlorine and fluoride to dissipate which can be irritating to some plants. But I have to say your plant looks pretty fabulous except for a couple of brown tips. 😍🀩πŸͺ΄πŸ‘
@MariansOasis thank you! Three enough that we don’t get much rain here in AZ, but lots of sun and blue skies! You are right as well about the minerals in the water. I’ll try some of your ideas with the water. All in all, yes, it is a pretty lush green plant! I just hoped it didn’t start getting brown tips! Thank you! πŸ’›πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ±
Most the time when plants get this it’s because it’s not humid enough. Sometimes putting a bucket of water in the room can bring humidity into the room helping the plant not be so dry on the tips
It’s also turtley ok to trim the brown off! I did it on mine and all is well ✨
A lot of plants are very sensitive to hard water and chemically treated water. I only use distilled or purified (by reverse osmosis) water, I am going to collect rain water also.
@Sassylimey good ideas. I might try that. TY β˜€οΈπŸŒ±
Yay Paula you finally have your blue tick so you’ll be getting your new Greg mug soon πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸΌ I hope to get one some day, they are super cute 🀩
