Typically it's an environmental issue. Indoor air can sometimes be too dry. Misting your plants on a regular basis or setting them on a gravel filled tray in which you keep a half inch of water will help. As the water evaporates it will increase humidity in the general area and help keep the leaves from developing brown tips.
