The Q&A Archives: brown tips on ti plants

Question: I planted red ti plants weeks ago and they are turning brown at tne tips of the leaves, what might the problem be?

Answer: Brown tips on ti plants usually indicates overly dry air. Since you've recently planted your ti plants and they're probably going through some transplant stress, I wouldn't worry too much about them. They will adjust and you can eventually cut off the affected leaves. Water deeply once each week (or twice if the weather is hot) and mulch over the top of the soil with compost or other organic mulch to help slow evaporation and moderate soil temperatures. Water regularly until fall rains take over for you. Best wishes with your new plants!
