Answer: Usually, brown leaf tips indicate a moisture problem - either too much or too little. If your mytlewood is Myrtus communis, the common myrtle, which is native to the Mediterranean region, it thrives in a warm area with low humidity and a soil that drains well, yet has enough organic matter to hold adequate moisture. If the soil in the pot drains too well and lacks organic matter, repot the plant in a potting soil that is richer in peat or compost. On the other extreme, if the soil holds too much moisture, the roots won't draw water efficiently, since a balance of air and moisture is what roots need to function properly. In this case, repot in a soil with added vermiculite and some sand to promote better drainage. I hope this makes the difference - if not, please visit us again.
