I have a corn plant (Dracaena Massangeana) and the ends of the leaves are turning brown. Should I cut the brown ends off or leave it alone? Does this mean I am watering too much. Thanks

Some people leave the tips "as is" and ignore them, but you can trim them off using sharp scissors. You can try to shape them naturally to make it a little less obvious. The brown tips can indicate over- or under-watering, or air that's too dry. Water thoroughly then allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again. This might help regulate the soil moisture and keep your plant from developing brown leaf tips. Hope so!
