Almost two months ago i bought a ficus elastica (rubber plant). Since then it did grow a few new leaves, and it keeps growing. A few days ago i saw that some of the old leaves have these brown edges:
I'm a newby when it comes to plants so i don't know the reason. Is it the soil? Am i giving too much water (normally when the soil feels dry i give it some water)? The plant doesn't get direct sunlight.
Maybe i can get some advice from you guys. Thanks in advance.

|The brown edges are limited and not indicative of a serious problem.
In general, it should be within a few feet of a sunny window where it can get a couple of hours of direct sunlight each day. Water it thoroughly as soon as the top inch of soil feels dry.
Why is the soil on top loose and clumping?
