Browning leaf tips is not normal but it is very common. The leaf tips may brown if the plant is allowed to dry out, or may brown if overwatered, so the secret is to keep the soil evenly moist yet not sopping wet. Try, too, for a humid atmosphere; dry air indoors, especially during the winter heating season but also during the airconditioning season can also cause some browning. Finally, direct sun can cause browning if it is too strong, so try for bright but indirect light. Hope this information is helpful.
