I have a money tree at home that I am trying to grow. So far, so good. The thing is that while I have new leaf growth because of lots of bright indirect light,the ends of some of the leaves loom like they are brown and drying out. What should I do?

Browning leaf tips can indicate low humidity or salt build up in the soil. Indoor air can be quite dry in the winter time which can show up as browning leaf tips. You can increase humidity around your plant by setting it on a gravel filled tray in which you keep a little water. As the water evaporates it increases humidity in the general area. Salt build up can be controlled with periodic deep soakings which will leach salts away from the roots. Hope this information is helpful!
