The Q&A Archives: Athen's blue tubiachina with brown, curled leaves

Question: Why would the tips of the leaves on my tubiachina plant (athens blue) turn brown and curl?

Answer: Linda,

That is due to either temporary droughty soil conditions, burn from a fertilizer application or possibly a severe nutrient deficiency (possibly potassium). Make sure the soil stays moist not soggy and if you haven't fertilized feed it with a complete liquid product such as Miracle Gro.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
