hmmm...mine dry off at the tips...usually due to me forgetting to water or mist them. Sometimes because a leaf is touching a cold window in the winter and I never noticed soon enough.

Are the leaves getting bent by something maybe?

I have a couple that tend to do that closest to the soil. I thought maybe they were getting too much moisture.
