If the entire plant is turning brown it may be too late to save it. Water stress, especially root rot can cause those symptoms so you may need to dig around and investigate the root system. I wish I could diagnose the problem for you but without seeing the plant, I'm at a disadvantage. You can take a sample of the foliage to your local cooperative extension office. They can look at the foliage under a microscope for insects or diseases. If they find nothing, the problem is most likely related to a water stress issue. Wish I had better news for you!
