   Common Problems Q&A

 Why does my plant have brown tips?

Brown tips can be caused by uneven watering. Make sure you are watering your plant consistently. Make sure the plant is not sitting in too much water, also the soil should not completely dry out for long periods of time.

Why are my leaves drooping?

This is likely caused by under watering. Once you water your plant the leaves should perk up within just a few hours!

How do I keep my plants growth even and full?

Keeping a consistent watering schedule and rotating your plant regularly is the key to a happy and full plant. Consistently pruning your plant can also prevent it from having a top heavy shape.
